"Be the change you wish to see in this world."

I am a Nebraska girl at heart.  Back to school and our infamous blackshirts make August a candidate for the best month of the year.  While our Huskers are sweating it out on the field, our personal journeys begin strong in the classroom.  Each new year brings excitement and opportunity for academic, social, and emotional growth.

I graduated in 2000 from Hastings College with a Bachelors of Arts in Elementary Education, endorsed K-8.  I taught in Bellevue Public Schools for four years.  I enjoyed teaching both third and fifth grades for two years each.  I have been teaching 4th grade at Norris since 2014.  

I am blessed with four children, Cade, Carson, Chloe, and Cale.  My four C's attend Norris and I am truly honored to be a part of such an amazing group of professionals in fostering the growth and development of our next generation.
