Math Teacher in Cozad, Nebraska

View my portfolio

I was born and raised in Western Nebraska. For undergrad, I attended Nebraska Wesleyan University where I played basketball and studied abroad (finishing my student teaching in New Zealand). After graduating, I put my middle-level teaching degree to good use and spent two years teaching in a small community on the eastern plains of Colorado. Afterward I joined the Peace Corps and volunteered teaching English and Math, for nearly two years, in the Republic of Kiribati which is located in the Pacific Ocean. I returned to my hometown of Kimball, NE, to accept the perfect job of teaching middle level math and coaching cross country. I remained at that job until I married my husband and moved to Cozad, NE, where he is the high school guidance counselor and I teach high school math. I am also the assistant cross country coach and have had my hand in many other sports. My husband, Dustin, and I have built a beautiful family with one son, Carson (6), and one daughter, Kelsey (4). My biggest educational goals is to continually grow so that I can meet my students in their ever changing world. I never want to settle, I want to get better every day.
