Meet Our Principal

Meet Our Principal
Welcome to Wheeler Elementary, a school dedicated to life-long learning for ALL. 2015-2016 is my sixth year as Principal at Wheeler Elementary School, and I have been in education for 18 years. I received my undergraduate degree from UNL and my masters from UMKC. With each experience I become more grateful for the wonderful opportunities life has provided me. I am honored and humbled to be part of Wheeler. The staff, students and community share a dedication to excellence for children.   You sharing your time, talents and input with Wheeler allows us to attain a higher level of excellence; we cherish the collaborative effort.
In addition to the 600 students at Wheeler who each hold a special place in my heart, I have two children of my own. My daughter is a fifth grader and my son is a third grader at Reeder Elementary. The energy and joy they share with my husband and I is amazing.
This year’s theme for Wheeler is “It's your Superpower: QUESTIONING”. Wheeler will spend time modeling, encouraging and celebrating critical thinking.  Thank you for sharing with us your most precious gift, your child.
