My name is Mrs. Keene. I've been with the Conestoga school district since 1997. When I started teaching at Conestoga I was a fourth grade teacher and a sixth grade teacher. My second year of teaching was with the sixth grade and then I taught first grade for 15 years. I then taught second grade for four years. For the past two years I was the Title teacher at the elementary. This year I am a kindergarten teacher. This is my 24th year of teaching and I have loved it all!
I completed my degree at Northwest Missouri State University and then received my Master's degree from Doane College.
My husband and I have been married since 1995. We have no children, but we do have three dogs named Prinsis Maybull, Lillee, and Pudge. We LOVE our four-legged children!!
