According to Elizabeth: "My education is my greatest accomplishment in life! The education that I received at UNL has helped me tremendously in my teaching career. I got to work with and study from some of the best teachers during my years of formal education. They served as excellent role models for me as I prepared for my teaching career. They modeled the very things that they expected of me as a preparing teacher. They set a high standard for lesson plans, which helped me with formal administrator observations within my classroom during my first two years of teaching. The lesson plans encouraged us to consider the broad concepts or the “big ideas”. This helped me tremendously when I was teaching the International Baccalaureate program at Millard North Middle School. UNL encouraged me to continue to be a learner and to continuously reflect on my teaching practices. UNL has given me a wide breadth of knowledge within my subject area. Knowledge truly is power!"

Elizabeth graduated in December 2014 with a Master's Degree in Education-Curriculum and Instruction
