Madison Middle School | Principal
My name is Roberta Isom but I go by Bobbi. I grew up in Litchfield, a small town in central Nebraska until I was in the ninth grade. I then moved to Kearney, Nebraska and graduated in 1983 from Amherst High School in Amherst, Nebraska. I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary and Special Education at Kearney State College.
My husband and I then moved to California where I taught for 6 years. During our time in California I taught resource and Special Day Class for kids with greater learning and behavior concerns. I continued my education at Cal State Northridge and Cal State San Bernardino in the area of special education. I earned my certification in Learning Disabilities and worked toward a Master's degree in Special Education. We were blessed with two children during this time period so we decided to move back to Nebraska to be closer to family.
I accepted a teaching position at Adams Middle School in North Platte in 1994 and continued teaching there for 21 years. I taught resource, and sixth and seventh grade social studies at Adams. Due to my love for education, especially middle level education, I returned to school and I earned a Master's of Education in Middle Level Education in 2008. I moved to Madison Middle School, in 2015, where I taught sixth grade social studies. I then earned a Masters in Special Education Curriculum and Administration in 2016. I am definitely a life-long learner.
This year I accepted the position of Madison Middle School Principal. I am very excited to lead an amazing staff at Madison. I have trained my entire teaching and educational career for this position and was finally ready to move on and guide this amazing team.
My children are now grown and living own. I am a grandma to three amazing boys and two wonderful girls. I like to read, exercise and watch reality TV with my husband.
