“My experience at UNK helped develop me into the leader and teacher that I want to be. At a young age, I knew I wanted to help youth grow and develop into successful adults. My desire is to share the beauty and art of mathematics that I experienced at UNK with my students at Kearney High. The professors at UNK brought mathematics to life. The program challenged my mind, honed my skills and prepared me for teaching."
