Message from the Principal

My name is Ben Midge. I am honored to be the Principal at South Terrace Elementary School. I am married to Jenni and we have six children, 3 girls and 3 boys. I am originally from the Brainerd Area, and graduated from Brainerd High School in 2000. I graduated from Southwest Minnesota State University in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I began teaching in 2008 at the Plainview-Elgin-Millville School District where I taught 2nd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade for 8 1/2 years. During that time I went back and obtained my Master's in Educational Leadership and my Principal Licensure all from Concordia- St. Paul University. My hope now is to be with Carlton for a long time to come and be a positive leader for the school and community.
