Hello and welcome to kindergarten! My name is Miss Straw and I am incredibly excited for my second year at Willard! I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha in May 2020 where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Special Education. I grew up in Red Oak, IA and my amazing elementary teachers inspired me to teach – this is my dream career! Outside of school I love exercising, collecting plants, and spending time with my family. My favorite part about working at Willard is the relationships that are built between students, families, and staff. I am looking forward to having a wonderful year with my kindergarteners in room 103!
