Welcome Alie Kropp, New ESU 10 Employee  

September 29, 2016
I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Education degree with an endorsement in Language Arts. I completed my graduate degree as a PK-12 Reading Specialist from UNK in 2014. I was fortunate enough to start my teaching career at Horizon Middle School where I taught 7th grade English and reading. I also taught 9th and 11th grade English at Kearney High School. 

My husband, Pete, and I have been married for almost five years. He is a teacher at Horizon Middle School in Kearney and an assistant Kearney High football and head Horizon track coach. Go bearcats! I grew up in Shelton, Nebraska on the family farm. We are currently building a house there and plan to move to the farm from Kearney in late October. We are so excited to be in the country and my parents are looking forward to having help on the farm! I have three older sisters who each have three children, so we spend a lot of time outside of work babysitting and entertaining them! In addition, I enjoy reading, shopping, gardening, and spending time with close friends and family. 

I am thrilled to start my new position as the Statewide Coordinator for the Assistive Technology Program and am looking forward to becoming a part of the ESU 10 family!
