Mr. Stephen Funk

My wife and I are extremely excited to be here in Park Rapids!  Moving back to the trees and lakes is "home" for me as a Sebeka High School graduate that grew up on a farm outside of Nimrod where we raised registered black angus cattle and also managed the land as a certified tree farm.  Agriculture and teaching students are two of my passions, and I am excited to share them with my students here at PRHS.  In my free time I enjoy camping, kayaking, hiking, skiing, fishing, hunting, and just about any other activity you can think of in the great outdoors.

Ms. Amber Seibert

I am so excited to be continuing my teaching career at Park Rapids! I am originally from the area: my parents have a dairy farm just east of Sebeka. I have also taught agriculture at Sauk Rapids-Rice and Fairmont. After years on the open prairies, I was ready to come home to the trees and lakes. When I'm not in my classroom, I try to go adventuring: I love hiking, kayaking, snowshoeing, and otherwise exploring the beauty of Minnesota. I'm a huge reader, and I cheer for the Golden Gophers (Ski-U-Mah!) and the Twins. I love teaching agriculture, and I'm looking forward to getting to know my students and the community!
