Mrs. Keene

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!!

I grew up in Weeping Water.  I have one sister, one brother, eight nieces, and nine nephews.  Spending time with my family is one of my favorite things to do. Besides spoiling my dogs, I also love spending time with my husband, spending time with my friends, reading books, and baking cookies.
