BOYCEVILLE — Three new teachers will be working in the Boyceville school district when school starts September 4.
In addition to three new teachers, the Boyceville school district also has hired Tyler Moy as the new principal for Boyceville High School and Boyceville Middle School.
The new teachers include Jackie Giedd (middle school special education teacher); Kacey Lane (high school business education); and Megan Steinkraus (middle school and high school art).
Jackie Giedd will be serving as a special education teacher at Boyceville Middle School.
Giedd will be earning a Master of Science degree in Education with an emphasis on human resources training and development in December from UW-Stout.
She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in vocational rehabilitation and special education from UW-Stout in 2004.
Prior to accepting the position in Boyceville, Giedd served as the high school work experience coordinator and a case manager for special education at Rice Lake High School beginning in August of 2017.
From 2013 to 2017, she served as the middle school and high school transition coordinator at River Falls High School.

Prior to accepting the position in Boyceville, Lane was a teacher and the athletic director at Pepin High School for six years.
