I was born and raised in Omaha, NE. My husband Patrick, who is a research chemist, and I celebrated our 14th anniversary this summer. We were high school sweethearts! Our children make us smile and laugh every day! We have an eight-year-old son, Dylan. He is a funny, active, inquisitive young man. Our five-year-old daughter Ayla is such a silly, adventurous little girl. Our sweet baby girl Nora turned one in April 2017. She loves getting into things and trying to keep up with her older siblings.
I enjoy reading and spending time with our families. Of course, I am a Nebraska Cornhuskers fan; but I am a huge Green Bay Packers fan. My husband is a huge Chicago Bears fan. Let's just say that Sundays can get pretty interesting at our house during the fall!
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education from UNO, and I earned my Master of Education degree in Reading through Concordia University. I finished my Elementary Mathematics endorsement through UNL in the summer of 2015.
This is my twelfth year teaching at Fullerton Elementary Magnet. I love everything about this school - the positive atmosphere, the great staff, the terrific students, and the wonderful families. I also love teaching fourth grade!
