I am married to Mr. Hergott and we have three children.
In my free time I enjoy biking, drawing, painting and printmaking, being in nature, reading and traveling.
I believe that students make meaning by connecting learning to a big idea, or enduring idea. I strive to use big ideas to apply interdisciplinary teaching and make connections to what students are exploring in other disciplines, in their community, and in the world.
I graduated from UNL with a bachelors degree in Art Education and received my masters degree in Art Education from UNK in 2018. I have been teaching at Maxey since 2007. Before that, I taught at a K-12 consolidated school for two years.
