I grew up in Iowa. After graduating from high school, I moved to Lincoln for college at UNL and have lived here ever since.
In my free time, I enjoy playing with my husband and my two kids, reading, crocheting, waterskiing, and traveling.
I graduated from Roosevelt High School in Des Moines, IA. I attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and did practicum experiences at Clinton, West Lincoln, and Elliott. My student teaching experience was at The Downtown School in Des Moines, IA. When I graduated with a bachelor's degree in education, I worked at Humann Elementary in Special education grades PreK-2. Then I worked for 4 years at Mickle Middle School, where I taught 6th grade language arts and Reading Ideas.
I went back to school to get my school library media endorsement and my masters of education. I worked as the Mickle school library media specialist for three years.
In the fall of 2012, I had the opportunity to come to Schoo as the school library media specialist. I am so happy to be here and enjoy working with your students!
I am a member of the Nebraska School Library Association, the American Association of School Libraries, and the Nebraska Educational Technology Association.
