Welcome to Head Start!

Hello!  My name is Amy Mahr and I am the Head Start teacher here at Standing Bear Elementary.  This will be my second year teaching at this amazing school.  I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha receiving a degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education. 

My husband Chris and I have been married for six years and we have two amazing boys.  Eli is 2 years old and baby Noah was just born in December 2018. In addition, we have a 7 year old furbaby, Ralphie. My house full of boys keeps me very busy, but it is so much fun being their Mom. 

I am beyond excited to have your child in my class!  Head Start is an amazing program and students will learn so much and acquire many skills during our several Studies/Themematic Units, which are also incorporated into play in creative and fun ways.  I look forward to a successful year and working with you and your children.
