A Little Bit About Me



Mr. Ringstmeyer

Ringstmeyer's K-12 Website ]
 

If you can't find me in the classroom, you will probably find me somewhere on or near a wrestling mat!! 

Welcome to my web-space on the Hot Springs School Website. 
I have a k-12 website http://rr025.k12.sd.us that I invite you to visit.  This website contains
specific webpages for US History, Government, Bison Wrestling, and other information. 
There is also a Lesson Plan Page that I try to keep updated throughout the school year.

To get you started, though here is a summary of what I would like you to know about me:

Philosophy
I am a highly motivated individual, and I demand the absolute best performance out of my students and athletes.  I have always put forth 100% effort, and I expect the same of the young people I work with.
