Degrees Held & Institution Received From:  Bachelor of Science from UNL, Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Doane College/Lincoln campus.

Favorite thing about teaching: I LOVE working with children and watching their face as they grasp a concept for the first time.  Watching them take risks and feel successful is a thrill.  It is so exciting to see them grow and learn and discover they have grasped so many concepts as the year goes along.

Hobbies/Interest Areas: I enjoy traveling, scrap booking, reading, gardening, spending time with my family, attending our grandchildren's activities, and spending time with our wonderful granddaughters; Ainsley Maye, Annie Marie, and our grandson; Parker Jarrett.
