I teach 6th and 7th grade math at Beatrice Middle School. I am in my 31st 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-seven years. We have two boys. Jacob is 22 years old and is a senior in college. Luke is 17 years old and is a junior in high school. We live near the huge metropolis of Clatonia, population 230. I enjoy sports (especially my Packers and Huskers), cooking, reading, and spending time with my family and friends.
