I have taught English at Kearney High School since 2001. Previously, I taught Language Arts at Kearney Catholic High School. I have background in Speech, Debate, and Theater as well. My Master's Degree is in K-12 Reading. Currently, I teach mostly Literacy Enrichment (all levels), Sophomore, and Freshman English. I enjoy getting to know students and spending this time with them, which hopefully, reflects in their grades and our relationships with them. In the past, I've spent my summers teaching in a variety of capacities at YRTC-Kearney. I've taught Reading, Title One, and Basic Education there. The past few summers, I've been adding to my graduate hours by completing coursework through Drake University. I'm married, have three children, and one SPOILED dog - a Shetland Sheepdog (Zoie). I LOVE to read and travel.
