I am serving as the school counselor for the K-!2 students. I also teach 7th grade Math and guidance lessons for the elementary students. I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and have have also received additional endorsements through classes at Wayne State and Chadron State College. My husband, Glen and I live on the family farm and we raise cattle, corn, soybeans, and alfalfa. I have 4 adult children, Curtis, Allison, Ryan, and Andrea who have all graduated from Leigh Community Schools and are working as engineers, teachers and managers. I enjoy spending time with my 3 grandsons, Kaifer, Oliver and Hudson. I have enjoyed being employed by Leigh Community Schools for many years, having served as FCS teacher, 6th grade and Middle School Math teacher and currently as school counselor. My hobbies include spending time with my family and gardening.
