Welcome to 4th Grade!
A little bit about me... I was born and raised in Grand Island, Nebraska and graduated from Grand Island Senior High School. I attended college at UNK where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education 2007. Once I graduated from college, I moved to Houston, Texas. I taught 5th grade in Houston for 5 and ½ years and then decided I was ready to move back to Nebraska. I couldn't stay away from UNK and went back for my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, graduating in 2018. I enjoy reading, cooking, and spending free time with family and friends.
My goal as teacher is to not only help them grow academically, but personally as well. In our classroom we work hard and celebrate when we have accomplishments. My main goal is for my students to feel safe and respected. I also want my students to leave my classroom at the end of the year with a growth mindset and the grit to accomplish anything they set their mind to.
I'm looking forward to a great year!!
