I look forward to an excellent year of learning and fun!
I grew up on a farm in Maxwell, which is a very small town near North Platte. I spent a lot of time helping out with the animals, raking hay, and piling hay bales. I also spent a lot of time reading books either in a tree or on top of the barn. I have two brothers, who are both accountants. I also have a sister who teaches 4th grade in McCook. My parents still live on the farm, but are enjoying retirement.
Currently, I live in Overton. My husband, Brian, is the PreK-12th grade principal at Overton Public School. I have a daughter named Haley, and 2 sons named Braden and Brody. We also have a Shih Tzu named Thunder. In my free time, I love to read, golf, garden, travel, cook, bake, and spend time with family and friends.
I graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University. I received my master's degree from Peru State College. My teaching experience includes:
2003-2005 Title I Reading and Math instruction at Cedar Bluffs Elementary in Cedar Bluffs, NE
2005-2008 2nd grade teacher at St. Wenceslaus Elementary in Wahoo, NE
2008-2011 3rd grade teacher at Windy Hills Elementary
2011-present 5th grade teacher at Windy Hills Elementary
I love learning right alongside the students. We have a lot of fun in 5th grade! Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or announcements!
