I was born in Beatrice. My family moved to Cortland. I attended Norris Elementary, Middle and High School. I graduated Nebraska Wesleyan University with a degree in elementary education and a minor in computer applications. I have a fifth year from Cal State San Bernadino, CA in computer education.
I am married to Joel and have two sons Austin and Dillon. Austin graduated from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, VA with degrees in Mathematics and Biochemistry. He is attending Medical School at Northwestern in Chicago. Dillon is sophomore at the University of Lincoln. My family lives on an acreage outside Roca. We have a cat named Tess, a dog named Sophie and a bird named Chester.
My philosophy of education is that every child is a learner. I set high expectations for all.
I hear, and I forget.
I see, and I remember.
I do, and I understand.
