Welcome to my website!  I am excited to begin my 21st year teaching first grade, and my 20th year with Westside.  I grew up in a farm in Springfield, Nebraska.  I then continued to Platteview High School, Nebraska Wesleyan University, and Doane College to complete my Masters +30.  I then married my husband Matt, moved to Gretna, and now have two sons ages 8 and 4. In my spare time I help run our Powersports store in Gretna, enjoy walking, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.
