My name is Mark Vodicka and I have been a teacher for Lincoln Public Schools for the last 22 years.  I currently teach 7th and 8th grade earth, life, and physical science at the Nuernberger Education Center and I am fortunate to teach at a school, district and city that places a high value on education. 

Professional Experience

I received my bachelor's degree in 7-12th grade health and physical education in 1992 and a master's degree in K-12th grade special education in 1996 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  I began my teaching career at Lincoln Public Schools Behavioral Skills Program (BSP) in 1996 teaching 7th and 8th grade math and science.  In 2014 I left BSP to teach 9-12th grade science and math at Southeast High School and the following year I taught 9-12th grade science at the Yankee Hill Program.  I came to the Nuernberger Education Center in 2016 to teach 7th and 8th grade science and currently serve as a team leader for the program.
