About Me

For children, play is as natural as breathing—and as necessary.

—Mimi Brodsky Chenfeld,
U.S. early childhood educator and author

I grew up in Aberdeen, South Dakota, I loved school and always wanted to be a teacher when I was little.  My path wandered a little and when I graduated from high school I decided to attend the University of Mary, in Bismarck, Noth Dakota to be come a physical therapist.  After a year of college I decied to return to my childhood hopes of becoming a teacher, and I am so glad I made the decision to follow my true passion in life - the education of young children. I taught preschool for 9 years at Everett Elementary, Belmont Elementary and for a few years in San Antonio, Texas. I have always loved working with students who are learning a new language, which has prompted my recent move to teach ELL classes at West Lincoln. 

I am currently studying at UNL to obtain my  Master's in Education.
