Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!


This is my thirteenth year of teaching.  I spent my first 2 years teaching 6th grade at Belle Ryan Elementary.  I made the move to Chandler View and this is my 11th year teaching 4th grade. I earned my Bachelor's degree from UNO and a Master's degree from Concordia University.   I am married and I have 2 daughters.  Delaney is a freshman at UNL. Jenna is in seventh grade and is busy playing soccer for the Springfield Soccer Club.  My husband and I enjoy home improvement projects, spending time with our daughters, walking our dogs, and watching movies.  We also have furry children to care for.  Scarlett and Lincoln are our dogs and Apollo is our cat.  We are a very busy family!
