Degrees and Certifications:
Hello students and families,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! This is an exciting time for your child even though he/she may be a little nervous about coming. I am sure as parents you have mixed emotions as well. The first day is an exciting time and I am glad I get to share it with you.
I would like to assure you that I will do my best to make sure this school year is enjoyable, but also filled with real learning. The skills we practice daily are the building blocks to their future success in school and life. I know if we all work together, we can make this a wonderful year!
I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Deanna Haverty and this will be my 19th year at Conestoga. I have taught grades 3rd, 4th, and 5th but I have been in Kindergarten for the past 12 years and I truly love it! I have an Associate of Arts Degree in Early Childhood and a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Peru State College.
I am married to my husband Pat, and have lived in Lincoln for six years. Prior to that we lived in Nebraska City. We have three children and five grandchildren. Two of my children live in Omaha and one lives in Mississippi. In my spare time I like to read, shop, travel, and spend time with my family.
I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child. I will send home information to keep you informed and up-to-date on what we are doing in the classroom, as well as what you can do with your child at home to provide extra support as needed. If you ever have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me.
