Adams Middle School Administrators
I grew up Scottsbluff, Nebraska graduating from Scottsbluff High School in 1995. Even Though I grew up in the panhandle, North Platte has always been a second home to me. My grandparents lived here and my dad graduated from North Platte High School in the late 60’s. I graduated with my undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I taught my first year at Guilford Middle School in Greensboro before I moved back to Nebraska. I met my wife Megan at Chadron State College where I was completing my Masters Degree. Megan I married in 2009. I have taught all over the state but most recently, I was teaching English at Loup County High School for grades 8-12 in Taylor, Nebraska. My first year with North Platte Public Schools was 2015 when I was the Assistant Principal here at Adams Middle School. I really enjoy working with the students, staff, and parents here at North Platte Public Schools and look forward to great things here in North Platte.
Hello, my name is Brett Joneson. I graduated from Brady High School in 1987. I received my Bachelor’s degree in education from UNK in 1992. I earned my Master’s Degree in Administration from UNK in 2001. I have been a teacher, coach and administrator for North Platte Public Schools for 20 years. Prior to coming to North Platte, I taught social studies at Lawrence Public Schools for 4 years.I taught 9th grade Social Studies and World History at North Platte High School for 14 years, and also coached Sophomore and Varsity Football during that time. I have taught Drivers Education for NPPS and MPCC for several years. I moved into the Administration side of education in 2012 as the Middle School Activities Director and Assistant Principal. I was given the task to implement interscholastic sports at the 8th grade level. Since its start in 2012 we have also added 7th grade into competitive sports, and have continued to add sports and clubs to provide our students with more opportunity. Activities are the other half of Education!
I served in the Nebraska Army National Guard for 6 years. I have coached little league baseball and youth football in the North Platte community. I am married to my wife Kim who is a para-educator for NPPS. We have two sons, Cole who is a recent graduate from NPPS and currently a student at UNL. Caden is a 4th grader in the district. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, outdoor activities, and the Huskers. I am PROUD to be a BULLDOG!!!!
