Buffalo Elementary | First Grade

My name is Susan Wesslund.  I am a North Platte native and a 1978 graduate of North Platte High School.  I attended the University of Nebraska at Lincoln where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Development.  My husband Dan is also a North Platte native and is retired from the Union Pacific Railroad.  Our daughter Annah returned to North Platte after graduating from the University of Nebraska Medical Center.  She is a dental hygienist at Phelps Family Dentistry.  Our son Alec is a Junior at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln and is an accounting/economics major.


I began my teaching career with the North Platte Public School system in 1982 at Buffalo Elementary School.  I have been teaching first grade at  Buffalo for 35 years, occasionally

teaching a second generation student!  I was fortunate to be a part of the teaching staff here at Buffalo when we were recognized as a Blue Ribbon School in 2010.  My goal as an educator is to help each child in my classroom develop a love for learning so they can be successful lifelong learners.
