I have been teaching kindergarten at Lothrop Magnet since the fall of 2015! I am also a member of the Omaha Public School's Tranforming Kindergarten host team where I act as a model classroom for purposeful play. I have my degrees in elementary education and special education from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am currently working towards my early childhood masters certificate and master in educational leadership. I am a big believer that children learn best through play experiences and hands-on learning. I got married in July of 2019 and my husband and I have a dachshund named Zoey! In my free time, I enjoy traveling, reading, and cooking.
