It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
Hello! My name is Missy DeHart, and I am a first grade teacher here at Karen Western- the best school in the world!
What I love to do when I'm not at school: Most of all I like to spend time with my family and friends! My husband and I have proudly welcomed two baby boys, Jack (2 years old) and Rex (1 year old)into the world in the last few years. They are our little angels and the best things to ever happen to us. I know all of you parents know the feeling! We have loved watching them laugh and grow and experience things for the first time.
In addition, our "first baby" is our black Lab named Chase!
I am one of 5 siblings and love being part of a big family.:) Also, I love cheering on the Nebraska Cornhuskers, running, reading, listening to music and attending concerts, traveling, and camping.

My favorite things about teaching:Having FUN learning together and watching students’ knowledge grow from the beginning of the year to the end of the year! I am always so proud. : ) This will be my sixth year teacher at Karen Western, and I couldn’t be more excited!
Education: I attended Kilgore College in Longview,Texas and Peru State College for my undergraduate studies in Elementary Education and Early Childhood. I recently completed my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction at Doane College as well. I love learning new things and bringing them into our 2nd grade classroom!
