I grew up in Arnold, NE and graduated in 1989. I went to UNL and received my degree in Elementary and Special Education. I began my teaching career in Kansas City where I taught 3rd grade for one year and then moved to Middle School where I taught special education for 4 years. I then moved to Lincoln, NE where I was a stay home mom for 7 years. I started subbing in 2009 and then became a member of the Cavett Staff in 2012. I taught 1st grade for 3 years and am currently a special education teacher starting my 2nd year.
