Jefferson and Lake | Music
My name is Sheryl Radke. I grew up in Lewellen, Nebraska and graduated from Lewellen Rural High School in 1988. I attended the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, graduating in 1992 with a Bachelor of Music Education degree with an emphasis in piano and vocal performance. I earned a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 2001.
I have four children, Nathan, Sydney, Ainsley and Dawson. Nathan and Sydney graduated from North Platte Public Schools and both attend the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, pursuing degrees in music education. Ainsley is a freshman at North Platte High School, and Dawson is in seventh grade at Adams Middle School.
I currently teach elementary general music at Jefferson and Lake Maloney elementary schools. I have also taught the same assignment at Eisenhower, Buffalo, Hall and Osgood elementaries in North Platte. Prior to teaching at NPPSD, I spent four years at Wallace Public Schools and eight years at North Platte Catholic Schools teaching K-12 vocal and instrumental music.
