My first grade teacher would tell you that I didn't want to be at school.  Not because I didn't enjoy learning, but because I didn't want to be away from home all day.  Thankfully, I grew out of that stage and my love for learning kept growing.  I often remember helping classmates with math and science questions in high school.  Now I am able to continue to do two of my most favorite things, helping others and continue learning how to be a better educator.

I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two boys.  We also have two dogs that share love incredibly.  Other interests include sewing, baking, being outside and Do-It-Yourself projects.  

Professional Experience

I graduated from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Secondary Math Education.  For ten years I stayed at home to raise our boys while they were young.  When they were both in elementary school, I began working there as a paraeducator.  Most of my work there was in reading and math intervention.  After subbing for two years, I became part of the staff here at Lux Middle School.  2015-16 is the beginning of my second year teaching math. I am excited and thankful to be here at Lux and look forward to a great year!
