I teach 6th and 7th grade math at Beatrice Middle School. I am in my 30th year of teaching. I grew up in Kearney, Nebraska, the youngest of 5 kids. In 1983, I graduated from Kearney High, and then went to the University of Nebraska where I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Middle School Education with endorsements in math and English. I received my Masters of Education Degree in Curriculum & Instruction from Doane College in 2005. My husband Bob and I have been married for twenty-five years. We have two boys. Jacob is 20 years old and is a junior in college. Luke is 15 years old and is in 10th grade. We live near the huge metropolis of Clatonia, population 298. I enjoy sports (especially my Packers and Huskers), cooking, reading, and spending time with my family and friends.
