Paulina Haak is a 2013 graduate from Linton Public School. She recently graduated from the University of Jamestown with her History Education degree. She was also a member of the Jimmie Track & Field, where she set two school records in the hammer and weight throws. She enjoys playing softball in the summer, cooking at her aunt’s café, canning with her mother, and spending time with her one-year-old German shepherd named Meeko. Paulina is the daughter of James and LuCinda Haak of Herreid, SD and has two sisters and 8 nieces and nephews. Paulina said she chose to go into education because it’s a family ordeal. Both her parents are in the field and so are some of her aunts.  This will be her first year of teaching and she is super excited to be in the community of Gackle Streeter. She is also very excited about getting to know the students and the staff.
