Hello! I am married to my wonderful husband Nelson and have a step-daughter, Giselle. In our free time, we enjoy cooking, going for walks, spending time with friends and family, and traveling. We have a dog named Lupita and a cat named Lucy. We especially enjoy visiting Manitou Springs, Colorado where my family has traveled for years. I come from a family of four including my mom, dad, and sister. My mom is a retired fifth grade teacher and my sister is the librarian at McPhee Elmentary. I think I have the best job ever and look forward to working with you!

Professional Experience

I am a third grade teacher at Prescott Elementary, home of the Panthers!  I attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education and Human Sciences in May 2005. I majored in Elementary Education and concentrated in Science. I then began my teaching career at Lakeview Elementary in third grade, located in the Lincoln Public Schools District. While teaching third grade, I also decided to go back to school to work on my Master’s degree at UNL. I graduated with my Masters of Arts in August 2008. I majored in Teaching, Learning, and Teacher Education and concentrated in Reading. In the summer of 2009, I moved to Prescott Elementary and switched to kindergarten. In 2011, I returned to third grade and feel that it truly is the best place to be. Throughout my career, I have received numerous honors including being an Inspire Educator Award recipient, Outstanding Education Award nominee, and listed in Who’s Who of Teachers in America.
