• Welcome to Bertha Barber Elementary

    I am honored to be principal at Bertha Barber and work alongside this gifted staff and outstanding families!

    I believe in educating the whole child (academically, socially, and emotionally). The staff works together extremely well and exude a family atmosphere and a love for the Bertha community which you will feel immediately upon entering. This is a small community who tremendously support each other. We look forward to helping all our students reach their full potential as it brings the most joy to our hearts!

    I was born and raised outside a small farming community called Woodbine, Iowa. I majored in physical education and played college soccer at Midland University in Fremont, Nebraska where I became a Nebraskan all the way. After college, I became the manager of a children’s fitness facility in Lincoln, Nebraska. This ultimately led me to Bellevue Public Schools as a physical education teacher. From there, I taught third grade, was lead teacher, and then became a principal all within the Bellevue Public Schools where the staff are truly #ChampionsForChildren!

    When not at school, you can find me attending sporting events, running, or camping with my friends, husband, and three children. We love being outdoors especially when the weather is nice, but don’t get me wrong, as a farm girl, I do appreciate a good rain!

    Your child is our child and we are here to serve you! #BobcatPride
