Jefferson Elementary | Fourth Grade

My name is Kaila Bodenus and I am from North Platte, where I graduated from in 2010. After high school I went to North Platte Community College where I graduated with my Associate of Arts and Associate of General Studies. After North Platte Community College, I enrolled in the Chadron State College Teaching program that was offered through Mid Plains. I graduated from Chadron with my Bachelors in Elementary Education and Special Education.I have recently graduated with my Masters of Science in Curriculum and Instruction from Peru State College. I am currently debating on another degree to pursue.

I am married to Josh Bodenus, originally from Franklin, NE. He is employed by the City of North Platte where he drives truck. We do not have any children at this time, unless you count fur babies. In that case we have a black lab/ st.bernard cross (Cubby) and a calico cat (Milly). We enjoy demolition derbies, stock car races, traveling, camping, and road trips.

I am a fourth grade teacher at Jefferson Elementary, where I have been teaching for four years. Before my teaching career I worked for North Platte Kids Academy as the Elementary Room Staff. I also worked at Lincoln Elementary as a paraprofessional.

My mission is to provide a safe learning environment, engage, motivate, inspire, and build positive relationships.
