Favorite Thing About Teaching

My favorite thing about teaching is working with my students. I love spending my days watching children learn and grow…they are such a gift. I love using technology to enhance my teaching and the learning of my students.

In my free time I love spending time with my husband Andy and my daughter Schia. I love to read, blog, and run. I love Husker football. I love going out to dinner with friends!

Anything written by Chris VanAllsburg or Patricia Polacco will NEVER disappoint.
