    My name is Darren Baartman. This is my 3rd year serving as the Dean of Students at the RTR Middle School in Russell. In addition to my duties as the Dean, I also teach 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Physical Education and serve as the Middle School Athletic Director. Overall this is my 26th year in the field of education. Over those 26 years, I have worked in the areas of Special Education, Physical Education, and been a Dean of Students. In addition to teaching and administration, I have coached football, basketball, baseball, and softball at various levels. Currently, I am a varsity assistant football coach for RTR. Here at the RTR Middle School, I am privileged to work with a great staff who do wonderful things every day in teaching and helping students reach their full potential. The staff is committed to providing a great education for all students while making RTR a great place to be. Please feel free to give me a call or stop by the office with any questions or thoughts. I can be reached by phone at 507-823-4371 or by email at darren.baartman@rtrschools.org

    It's a Great Day to be a Knight!
