Hello! My name is Janice Rhods. I am a first grade teacher here at Karen Western. This is my first year teaching but I am super excited to get started. I think that Karen Western is the perfect place for me to begin my teaching journey.
Education: I graduated in December 2014 from Wayne State College. Wayne State is located in Wayne, a small town in Nebraska. I earned a degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood. Also while at Wayne State I was a member of the soccer team!
Family: I have two older brothers, who mean the world to me. Also, I got married this summer to my wonderful husband, Dusty. So now instead of just my family I have his also!
Favorite Color: Blue
Favorite Sports to Play: Soccer, Volleyball and Basketball
Favorite Food: Pasta and Tacos
Favorite Things to do: play/watch sports, hang out with my family and cheer on the Nebraska Cornhuskers!
Favorite thing about teaching: I love being able to watch the students learn and grow through out the year. The excitement that students bring to a classroom is contagious.
And that's me!
