Hi! Thank you for visiting my page.

A little about me: I have been married to my husband Dennis for 24 years, and we have four children. Zack just graduated with an Animal Science/Ag Econ degree from UNL and is currently pursuing job options. Alexa is a combat medic in the National Guard. She works at Faith Regional as a phlebotomist while attending Northeast Community College to get her nursing degree. Caitlin is a senior this year at Boone Central. She loves volleyball and just returned from playing in Australia. Natalie is a seventh grader at Boone Central Middle School, and she is the talkative and musical one of the bunch! Some activities I enjoy are traveling, horseback riding, reading, scrapbooking, riding thrill rides, and hiking.

I love teaching middle school! The students at this age are so fun! I love their energy and enthusiasm. I earned my undergraduate degree at UNK with a field endorsement in Middle-Level Education. This is my 21st year of teaching and my 18th year at Boone Central.

Additionally, I am the middle school guidance counselor. This is another role I enjoy. We need to tend to our kids' social, emotional, career, and personal needs as well as their academic endeavors. I obtained my master's degree from UNK in school counseling.

An extracurricular activity in which I am involved at Boone Central is middle school speech. I have been coaching speech for 15 years, and I really enjoy it. I get to see students succeed in an area that provides lifelong benefits.

Overall, I'm very blessed with a wonderful family and a career that I love!
