Hello! My name is Mr. Runyon. I am very excited to be your 4th grade teacher this year. I am entering my first year teaching at Palisades and my first year teaching 4th grade. For the last 5 years I have taught 5th grade at Wisner-Pilger Elementary School in Wisner, NE. I am looking forward to new challenges and learning experiences in Gretna.
I live in Gretna with my wife, Megan, and our two boys, Hudson and Hayes. Hudson is 3 and Hayes will be 4 months in August. We enjoy spending time together as a family and playing outside. One thing I really love is music. I play drums at my church and enjoy playing and listening to all kinds of music. You will notice we listen to a lot of music in the classroom and use it to enhance our learning environment.
I attended Wayne State College on a football scholarship and earned my Education degree in 2011. I recently went back to school and received my Masters Degree in School Administration. I was born in Memphis, TN and moved to Bloomfield, NE in 7th grade. I still love the Memphis Tigers basketball team, but on Saturdays in the fall you will find me cheering loud for the Huskers! I hope you know a little bit about me and I can't wait to learn more about you this year!
