I graduated in December 2010, where I then subbed within Lincoln Public Schools during the spring. I moved up to Omaha when I was fortunate enough to land my dream teaching job at Karen Western!

**I believe students learn through hands on and engaging lessons! In 6th grade we will do many projects and open ended learning assignments to let students show what they know through creative and unique activities. We use group work, partner discussions, and book talks to work together to help our minds grow!
