Who's Who in Pender Schools- #40
Megan Nixon
Monday, April 01, 2019

Mrs. Gaer was #39.  Let's read about #40! 


Did you know this week’s ‘’Who’s who’’ was a nanny, a babysitter, and a cashier for Food 4 Less?  She even worked at the golf course, mowed the baseball field, and worked at the University Child Care while in college.  Speaking of college, she went to college at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). She later earned her master’s degree from Peru State College.  

Before her college days, this teacher graduated from Leigh High school. In high school, she was involved in volleyball, basketball, track, National Honor Society, band, mock trial, and one act.  Pretty crazy, right? I wonder if she uses those acting skills in her classroom? Maybe she can write me a narrative about all those jobs.  But, if she could have any other job in this world it would be a children’s book author where she could write from her front porch swing with a view of a lake and the mountains.

This PPS staff member doesn’t need any coffee to get her creative juices flowing.  Maybe no coffee works for her because she likes spending time with her kids outside, going for walks, watching sporting events, and shopping. She loves vacationing in Minnesota and taking her kids on little trips and seeing their faces light up when they see something for the first time.  

Her BIGGEST pet peeves are people chewing loudly and bad attitudes.  Luckily, she teaches high enough that in her class she doesn't have snack time.  So that's all I have to say about this week’s ‘’Who’s Who.” Hopefully you can write up an idea of who this week's staff member is.
