Please help us welcome one of our newest Rotarians, Kayla Lian!

I am a proud Prowler Alum, currently serving as the Interim Principal at LHS. I have been in education for 14 years, teaching in a variety of schools, grades, and content areas. I’ve taught in Gilbert, AZ – Buffalo, MN – Watertown-Mayer, MN – and was eventually blessed to make it back home to teach at Franklin Middle School. The majority of my teaching career has been in math, with a few years in reading and social studies. Serving a school is so much more than just the school day. I have led after school tutoring programs, coached a variety of sports, as well as reffed.

I am also currently the co-director of BIO Girls-Thief River Falls. We are coming up on our 3rd year serving the Thief River Falls community. BIO Girls is a preventative mental wellness program, with a mission of improving the self-esteem of 2-6 grade girls. We serve 40 girls each season and round out the season with a 5k. It’s a bucket-filler to lead young ladies in our community through physical activity, while building their self-esteem.

Professional life aside, I am a proud wife and mother. My husband, Christopher Lian, is the 6th grade social studies teacher at FMS. Together we have 5 sons: Kellen (4th gr), Everett and Jackson (2nd grade), Beckett (Kindergarten) and Declan (2yo). We have a family goal of going to every MN State Park, and we spend our summers exploring and camping around the state. We keep busy running to all of the activities our 5 boys find themselves active with, and we are so proud of the little gentlemen they are growing up to be. Being home has enabled us to spend quality time with family in the area, as well as wear our Blues and Golds proudly as a family of 7! Go Prowlers!
