Teaching has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl! I've been able to live that dream for more than 20 years! The first three years were as a 5th grade teacher in Gretna, Nebraska, where I was also blessed with the opportunity to coach high school volleyball and 8th grade basketball. We then moved to Hastings, where I continued coaching volleyball and taught fourth grade. When my husband accepted the position of Deputy County Attorney in Saunders County, we moved back to Lincoln. I taught Kindergarten for one year at Norwood Park Elementary, followed by seven years of fifth grade at Roper Elementary School. Then the opportunity of a lifetime presented itself... opening Kooser Elementary with an amazing group of people! (Can you believe I was the ONLY 5th grade teacher the first year? Look at us now!) We've seen our mission come to life and I feel incredibly blessed to teach in this amazing community!
