I have been a teacher since 1996. I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Kearney with a dual degree in elementary and special education. I moved to Lake Havasu City, AZ right after college and taught 6th grade for 5 years. I soon realized that I wanted to be closer to my family, so I moved to Omaha and taught Special Education for 4 years at Papillion-Lavista Public Schools. After I got married and had a baby I realized I wanted to spend some quality time at home, so I became a full-time mom for the next 3years. In 2008 I was hired as a special education teacher for LPS, and in 2009 I came to work at Beattie with a wonderful staff!! This is my tenth year in FIrst Grade.
I currently have 3 children that attend LPS. I have a daughter that will be a Freshman at Southwest, a daughter that will be an 8th grader at Scott Middle School, and a daughter that will be a 3rd grader at Cavett Elementary.
