Mrs. Foland

This is my 9th year teaching at Westmoor Elementary and I absolutely love my career. I was very lucky to be able to spend 2 years in Westmoor prior to teaching where I got to do my college hours for observation and student teaching. I knew immediately that this was the school I wanted to be apart of!

I am from Gering, Nebraska and am very blessed to be teaching so close to home. I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, with a minor in Special Education, from Chadron State College. I also received my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction Management from Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska. 

For the past 4 years I have been elected as the vice-president for our local Scottsbluff Education Association (SEA) and have been enjoying my leadership role working with educators throughout the district and state level traveling to Lincoln for conferences and committees. 

I am very passionate about teaching and am always looking for ways to continue my education growth. For the last three summers, I have been attending UNL workshops across the state for teachers of math and science. The collaboration and friendships have been amazing as well as all the content I have learned and the resources I have found. I also regularly attend the NATS/NATM fall conferences in Kearney, Nebraska that focus on math and science teaching.

I am happily married to my husband Joe who is a para in Minatare and also an assistant coach for track and basketball. We have one miracle daughter named McKinlee who was the result of three different infertility treatments. She will be turning 5 this December and our greatest blessing! When free time does come my way, I would choose to spend it curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee, soft blanket, and a good book. I also enjoy getting outdoors, yoga, scrapbooking and spending time with my friends and family.

  • 2nd grade homework consists of Accelerated Reading and Bridges Math Home Connections. Accelerated Reading (AR) should be done nightly. Our Bridges Math Home Connections correspond with certain lessons and will be sent home 2x a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    I would like my students to read and take AR tests at least 3 times a week and once a week when on chapter books. Homework is expected to be returned the following day unless otherwise noted.
