Biography

I am originally from North Platte, NE, but have lived in many places including San Francisco, New Mexico, and Memphis, TN, but ultimately this Husker girl returned to her home state and I love living in Omaha!  I am married with 2 adorable "fur babies" who I love to walk and cuddle with outside of school.  I started at Indian Hill Elementary in 2016 and I feel so lucky to be a part of this school and the community.  

I believe teachers should:  

·      Build meaningful relationships with students.

·      Embrace students being active creators or knowledge, problem solving, and cooperative learning.

·      Continue their own education to stay abreast of the most current methods to fully engage students.

·      Strive to develop students into valuable social beings. 

·      Teach students social skills to compromise and discover healthy resolution to conflicts. 

·      Create a classroom for each student to be heard, to feel safe, to build self-confidence, and to become a lifelong learner.

 ·      Fight for the rights of their students.

 ·      Assure fairness.

 ·      Meet the needs of diverse learners.

 ·      Believe that all students are capable of meeting high expectations.

 ·      Establish a classroom community so that students can interact with one another in an open, nonthreatening environment,              creating mutual support and promoting self-esteem.

Above all I believe learning should be FUN!  I strive to create a classroom community that is bright, happy and full of life!
