Mrs. Mriden










My name is Michele Mriden and have been teaching at West Central for over 25 years. I have taught first and second grade and am now a Reading Recovery teacher/title teacher. I attended University of Sioux Falls and received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education.


My husband, Lance works for Sirius computer company as a sales/marketing manager. We have two children. Paige attends the University of Sioux Falls and is planning to attend graduate school for physical therapy. Pierce attends the University of South Dakota and is majoring in business and marketing. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, spending time at our lake home on Kampeska, shopping, reading, and working out.


I am looking forward to another great school year and seeing the growth that the students will make throughout the year!
