Hi! Thank you for visiting my page.

A little about me: I have been married to my husband Dennis for 22 years, and we have four children. Zack is a sophomore in college this year at UNL, Alexa is a senior, Caitlin is a freshman, and Natalie is a fourth grader at Boone Central. Some activities I enjoy are horseback riding, reading, scrapbooking, riding thrill rides, and traveling.

I love teaching middle school! The students at this age are so fun! I love their energy and enthusiasm. I earned my undergraduate degree at UNK with a field endorsement in Middle-Level Education. This is my 18th year of teaching and my 15th year at Boone Central.

Additionally, I am the middle school guidance counselor. This is another role I enjoy. We need to tend to our kids' social, emotional, career, and personal needs as well as their academic endeavors. I obtained my master's degree from UNK in school counseling.

An extracurricular activity in which I am involved at Boone Central is middle school speech. I have been coaching speech for 13 years, and I really enjoy it. I get to see students succeed in an area that provides lifelong benefits.

Overall, I'm very lucky to have a career that I love!
