My name is Tonya Bishop. I was born and raised in Mandan, North Dakota, and received my degree in Education from the University of Mary in 2004. I have been working in the area of Special Needs for over 15 years. I have worked with pre-k to adults in Mandan, Bismarck, Fargo, and have been in Dickinson since 2007. One of the things I love is working with kids and helping them grow. My husband, Nute, and I have a wonderful son named Gus. We also have two dogs named Rufus and Jake. I like to spend as much time as I can with my family and friends. I enjoy reading, cooking, and nature.
