Harvey Oaks Third Grade

About Mrs. Kuch

My name is Maureen Kuch, and I have been teaching third grade here at Harvey Oaks for 15 years. I have a bachelors degree from Iowa State University as well as University of Nebraska Omaha. I received a Masters degree from Peru State College in the area of Curriculum and Instruction and have recently completed a Masters program from the University of Nebraska Lincoln called Primarily Math. I am excited to put all that knowledge to good use with our students here at Harvey Oaks.

My husband Bruce and I have 3 grown sons. Derek and his wife, Rachel, have three beautiful children, Sicily, Brady, and Blake. Logan and his wife, Brittany, have two fantastic kids, Zoey and Elliott. My youngest son, Austin, is married to Kaylee and works at Bennington Bank. In my free time I enjoy crafting, reading, walking/exercising, and spending time with my family.
