Barry Olson, Interim Superintendent

I would like to introduce myself to the Sauk Centre Community.  I am Barry Olson, the interim Superintendent for the rest of the 2021-22 school year.  I have been in education for 45 years.  I have taught in Omaha and Blair, Nebraska, and in Blooming Prairie and Owatonna in Minnesota.  My administration years were spent in Blooming Prairie, Henning, and now here in Sauk Centre.

I am excited to spend these months helping Sauk Centre bridge the gap between Mr. Westby and your new superintendent.  Sauk Centre Schools is a very good school district and is providing quality education for the community.  I am here to help continue this district’s goal of providing the best education possible. Many good things are happening and I will try very hard to make sure they continue.

Have a great rest of the school year and Go Streeters!

Sharon Haakinson, Administrative Assistant

Welcome!  I am delighted to be part of the team who serves the community here at the Sauk Centre Public Schools.  I grew up on a local dairy farm and have always called Sauk Centre home. After graduation, I completed the Legal Secretarial Program at Alexandria Technical College.  While we were raising our three sons, I was self-employed as a Job Developer in the Work Comp Industry and later accepted a position as an Office Administrator with Experience Works that operated nationally through state and federal grants.  

While our boys were growing up, we enjoyed horse riding activities and camping.  Les and I love spending time with our family and friends; and especially appreciate our time touring the beautiful country scenery together by motorcycle.

Amy Thieschafer, Payroll and Benefits Specialist

Hello! I am grateful and excited to join the team here at Sauk Centre Public Schools in February 2018.  I grew up on my family’s farm near Greenwald and graduated from Melrose High School.  I then attended Fergus Falls Community College where I received my Associate in Arts Degree and then transferred to St. Cloud State University and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance.  While in high school and college I worked as a Teller for five years at a Credit Union.  When I graduated college I accepted a position in St. Cloud doing accounts payables which soon grew into much more.  I managed five locations, processed payroll, Human Resources, Accounting and much more.  I was with that company for almost thirteen years and now am excited to learn the payroll process here and be working in the community we are raising our two beautiful children in.

In my families spare time you will find us camping, boating, riding 4-wheelers and snowmobiling (well if we get enough snow).  We truly love being active and doing anything that involves being outside.
