Linking my Classroom to the World

I am a secondary English teacher at Ord Public Schools, a small, rural school in central Nebraska. I earned a BA in English from Nebraska Wesleyan University and an MA in English literature from the University of Nebraska at Kearney; 2021-22 is my 16th year as an educator. 

I endeavor to provide domestic and international travel opportunities to help my students see more of the world and interact with diverse people and cultures.  I have a passion for global education and, in addition to taking post-masters classes on the subject, was awarded a 2019-20 Qatar Foundation International grant to experience and learn about Arab culture. 

In addition to traveling, I enjoy time with my family, kayaking, working with technology, reading, and learning about the world and other cultures.
