About Our Teachers

Mrs. Finke

My name is Holli Finke and I am a speech language pathologist at Prairie Elementary. I attended the University of South Dakota, where I obtained my undergraduate degree in Communication Disorders and a Masters Degree in Speech Language Pathology. I started with the Worthington School District in 2007, where I find new and exciting experiences every day. 

In my free time I enjoy trying to keep up with my three young children.

Mrs. Spartz

While working in District 518 I have worked in Early Childhood Special Education and First Grade. Currently I teach in Early Childhood Special Education with children ranging in ages from three to five. I am married and have six children. I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and making cards. My main goal at work is to make a difference with the students I teach. I’m always looking for ways to make a difference in people’s lives if it’s even with the smallest act such as a smile or a friendly “Hello”!
