I have taught for over 12 years in both private and public schools in the upper elementary and middle school grade levels. I also have taught at the College Level and have taught Physical Education Classes. Last year I taught Kindergarten and this year I am teaching 4th grade (and lovin' every minute)!
I love to be creative and invent new games and activities for my students. I want the year they spend with me to be memorable and fun. Check out my blog at www.onceuponacreativeclassroom.blogspot.com
2006 Nebraska Aerospace Teacher of the Year
I earned my Bachelors Degree at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. I earned my Masters Degree at Doane College.
I have four wonderful children and being a mom has made me a better teacher. I see each child as someone who is loved very much by someone and deserves the best that can be given to them.
