Welcome to a fun and exciting year of learning in fourth grade!  I hope to instill in every student a love and curiosity for learning, to develop and strengthen vocabulary and comprehension skills, to foster a love for reading and writing, and to develop and strengthen study and organizational skills.  We will work on team building, problem solving, and cooperation while also developing responsibility and independence.  I look forward to working with you and your child this year to prepare them for middle school.

I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln in 1997 and have taught for OPS since 1998.  I have been teaching at Standing Bear since it opened in 2005.  20 of my 21 years of teaching have been in 4th grade.  

My husband and I have 2 children.  My daughter Ashlyn is 12 years old, and my son Bryson is 7.  As a family we enjoy walking, biking, boating, playing sports, being outdoors, watching movies, and going out to dinner.  

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
