Associate Professor of Education
Hurley-McDonald #200

I am pictured here with my family. My daughter Laura attends Hastings College, my husband Roger is a Social Sciences teacher at Hastings High and my son Neal is now a Hastings College Alumni.  We love being together playing a board game, going to the movies and whenever we can traveling especially to Disneyland. We have lived in Hastings since 1991.
At Hastings College, I have the privilege of helping the Elementary Education majors work toward their ultimate goal of becoming a teacher.  I teach these majors courses in Science and Math Methods, Children’s Literature, Classroom Management and my personal favorite, assessment, and the Early Childhood majors take their methods and characteristics courses from me as well. I am pursuing a doctoral degree from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Here is a picture of the Junior Block students, which I help supervise at Lincoln Elementary as they prepare to become teachers.
