My first year of teaching was as a Kindergarten/Remedial Reading teacher at Filley in 1983. In 1984 I became the first grade teacher at Adams, and continued as we became Freeman. I moved to Kindergarten for ten years and for the last six years now I have been the Title Reading teacher. I also work with assessments and curriculum and am a coordinator for TeamMates of Freeman. My greatest joys in education have been teaching my own sons (and daughter-in-law) and watching my former students and the successes they are experiencing. I am now teaching my "grand students", children of my previous students, and have been for several years! I am a member of Pella Reformed Church where I love working with worship and education, and playing piano. In my spare time I attend Husker basketball games with my husband, Jay, and I love to read, sew, and play with my granddaughter.
I am starting my 17th year of teaching. I am married to Stacey Troxel. My hobbies include: Repairing and restoring arcade and pinball machines. “With integrity, you have nothing to fear, since you have nothing to hide.

I am starting my 18th year of teaching, and my 10th year at Freeman! This year I will be teaching Social Studies as well as some Writing. My family lives on an acreage near Cortland, and all 3 of our children attend Freeman. In my spare time I enjoy attending various Freeman events and activities. I also enjoy reading, and gardening as time permits. My favorite vacation destination is Jamaica, and just relaxing on the beach! Teaching has been a blessing in my life, and I love to watch students grow throughout their K-12 experience here at Freeman. I believe there is no other profession as rewarding as teaching, despite some of the daily struggles! My Top 5 Strengths are: Futuristic, Empathy, Discipline, Relator, and Learner. I try to use my strengths each day to ensure a positive learning environment for my students.

Being considerate of others and others' property, taking care of our own mind and body, talking to others-not about them.



Taking responsibility for our actions, no secrets, not blaming others, having pride in our decisions.



Having empathy, thinking before taking action, weighing options, being thoughtful of others' feelings.
