My name is Dawn Kuchta.  I graduated from a small high school in Mountain Lake, Minnesota. My educational background includes a B.A. degree in Computer Systems from the University of Wisconsin - River Falls.   I worked seven and a half years as a computer programmer and then Business System Consultant at CUNA Mutual Insurance Group in Madison, WI.  After that, I took a few years to stay home with my children until they were all in school.  I began working as a substitute teacher and decided to pursue teaching as my next career.  I received my teaching certification in the area of Computer Science in 2008.  I have taught high school Computer Science courses for 4 years at a different high school.  In 2012, my family moved to the De Soto area.  During the 2013-14 school year, I was the MS/HS At-Risk teacher at De Soto.  I have one child attending De Soto High School, two children in college at UW-La Crosse, and one child who in a graduate program in San Antonio, TX.  

As the Business/Computer teacher, I teach middle school Keyboarding and Career Exploration.  In the high school, I teach Job Skills, Computerized Financial Documents, Website Development, and Career/College Prep.  It is my goal to ensure the success of all students in my classroom.
