I'm one of the Resource Teachers here at Standing Bear Elementary.  This is my sixth year at Standing Bear, my 10th year with the district.  I began my teaching career in 2012-2013 at Central Park Elementary.  I moved to Standing Bear 2016-2017.  I was born in Omaha and attended OPS schools- I started at Harrison Elementary, went to Howard Kennedy Elementary for 2nd Grade, then moved to Rosehill Elementary.  Monroe Jr. High, as it was called when I attended there; we were the last 9th grade class to attend Monroe.   I graduated from Central High School in 1990.  My husband and I met at Monroe and have been married for 8 years.  I have two boys, Dillon 18 and Tyler 15.  Dillon graduated from  Burke High School and Tyler will be a 10th grader at Burke.


I graduated from UNO with a Bachelors in Public Relations.  I went to St. Louis, MO for 6 weeks of management training to bring Panera Bread to Omaha in 1999.  I graduated from University of Phoenix in 2012 with a Masters in Special Education.
