About Me

Hi, my name is Erika Schaefer. My husband, Scott is a mechanic at In Motion. My son, Cayden, is 6 years old and loves Superheros as well as Baseball and Soccer! My daughter, Mackenzie, is 4 years old and loves Cinderella and dance! My youngest is Jacob. He was born in January so we are enjoying watching him as he grows and develops his unique personality.

    I was born and raised here in Lincoln and attended Lincoln High School. I went on to get a degree in Special Education from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 2009. My first year teaching was at Pershing Elementary after which I decided to start my career as a Northeast Rocket in the fall of 2010. I graduated with a Masters in Education from Doane college in December 2014. I am now working toward my Masters degree for School Counseling through Doane College and hope to graduate this year! 

    After 5 years at Northeast I decided it was time to make the transition to become a School Counselor. Thus I made my journey to North Star High School! I am so excited to be here and look forward to learning and growing with all of you! Go Gators!
