I attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) and received a Bachelor's Degree in Agricultural Journalism-Advertising & Public Relations. I continued at UNL and received Nebraska teaching endorsements in Secondary English and Secondary Journalism. I have a Master's Degree in Teaching, Learning, and Teacher Education from UNL and a Master Degree in Technology Sciences with an emphasis in Library Media Specialist through the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
I teach Junior High and High School English. I am also the assistant Volleyball Coach and sponsor both the high school Book Club and the junior high Quiz Bowl team.
In my free time I enjoy reading, photography, scrapbooking, and outdoor activities.
