Freeman Title 1
Title 1 reading provides extra practice in reading skills in order for students to perform at grade level.
Curriculum and assessment director
The rest of my job includes Curriculum Director and District Assessment Coordinator. This allows me to work with all teachers K-12 and with NeSA assessments. I also am part of the CIP Committee (Continuous Improvement Process). Made up of staff members and community members, the CIP committee seeks to make Freeman the best it can be!
I love reading, baking, sewing, and working outside. I enjoy family time! We love our Huskers! We are avid Husker basketball fans. My husband Jay and I have seasons tickets near the Husker basket. Just look for us on the folding chairs below section 101! We also follow Husker football, baseball, volleyball, and softball. And, we love to follow the Freeman Falcons!
I have been teaching since the fall of 1984. After teaching Kindergarten and Remedial Reading at Filley Consolidated Schools for one year I moved to Adams Public Schools as the first grade teacher and was in that position as we became Freeman Public Schools. I later became a Kindergarten teacher, spending about 10 years in Kindergarten. In the fall of 2013 I changed positions completely, becoming the Elementary Music/Title 1/Curriculum person, and as of August 2015 I no longer am the music teacher. I have enjoyed the changes and the opportunities to work with a variety of ages.
My teaching highlights have included teaching both of my sons in first grade, as well as my daughter-in-law, and now teaching the children of former students, or as I call them, my "grand-students!"
