Cody Elementary | 1st Grade
My name is Alisha Polenske. I am from North Platte. I graduated from the High School in 2010, then went to college at the University of Nebraska Kearney. I graduated from there with a major in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Special Education in December 2014. After doing my student teaching and subbing for the North Platte School District, I fell in love with the atmosphere in the schools and was lucky enough to become a full time teacher here!
My first year was in Kindergarten at Cody School, then my second year began in 1st grade, which is where I am staying!I love being able to watch the kids grow each and every day, and seeing all the little “lightbulb” moments that happen! I am married to Brent Polenske Jr., who works at Auto One. We have two doggie children, Ranger and Mila, who have gigantic personalities!
As a teacher, I am learning new things each and every day right along with my kids! I can’t wait to see where teaching takes me! All of the kids who I have had, have now, and will have, have made such an impact on me and I hope to make a positive impact on them as well
