Welcome to Third Grade!
Hello everyone! Welcome to third grade at Buffalo Hills! I am excited for the opportunity to get to know your child as I look forward to a year full of fun, learning, and teamwork.
I was born and raised in York, Nebraska. After high school, I attended the University of Nebraska-Kearney. I earned my degree in Elementary Education (K-6) and supplemental endorsement in Interscholastic Coaching (7-12) during the winter of 2013. While at UNK, I competed on the track and cross country teams. Go Lopers! I also earned my MAE in School Principalship (PK-8) in the spring of 2018.
This fall will begin my eighth year of teaching. I am lucky to have taught them all at Buffalo Hills! Along with teaching at Buffalo Hills, I am also the head boys cross country coach and assistant boys track coach at Kearney High.
In my spare time I enjoy watching sports, attending sporting events, spending time with friends and family, traveling to new places, officiating basketball, and listening to music. I am a huge Tampa Bay Rays and Husker fan. My bucket list goal is to watch a game in every MLB stadium. So far I have been to 11 out of 30 stadiums! Also, I look forward to fall Saturdays in Memorial Stadium each season. My dad and I have not missed a home game in years!
I look forward to another great school year. My goal each year is to create a safe, respectful, responsible, and collaborative environment. Please reach out with any questions or concerns you may have! My email is email@example.com and our school phone number is (308) 698-8290.
