Hi, my name is Betsy Nolan, and I am excited to be one of the third grade teachers at Wysong Elementary. The 2018-2019 school year will be my 32nd year of teaching. Twenty-six of those years will have been in Lincoln Public Schools. I grew up in Lincoln and attended Prescott Elementary, Irving, and Lincoln Southeast. I have two daughters, Madison and Emily. Madison and Emily are both graduates of UNL. As you can imagine, I am one proud mom. In Sept., 2015 I was fortunate to marry my best friend, Kenny Nolan. He cheered me on as I headed down the driveway to my interview for this job, with Mr. Oltman.
It has been a great start to the year. We are learning the procedures and what it looks like to have routines and daily schedules again. Thanks for getting your students here on time, and ready to learn!
