Welcome Boyd Families and Friends!
name is Kristina Wellendorf and I teach in the Intermediate Alternate
Curriculum Program. I teach students in grades 3, 4, and 5 who have
different learning styles and abilities.
I graduated with
a Bachelor of Science in Elementary and Special Education from
Creighton University, and continued my graduate studies at University of
Nebraska at Omaha. I taught sixth grade at Indian Hills Elementary
School until a position in the special education classroom became
available. It then became necessary to relocate the special education
program to Boyd Elementary. After 6 years of teaching, I took time to
stay home and raise a family. Sixteen years later, I returned to Omaha
Public Schools and took a position as an intermediate Alternate
Curriculum Program teacher at Boyd Elementary.
My husband Doug and I have been married for over 25 years and have three
children. Elizabeth is a registered nurse and works in the ICU, our
son Andrew is graduating with a business administration degree from KU,
and Annamarie is currently in school to become a mortician. I have
seven siblings who all live in Omaha. We get together as often as
possible with cousins to enjoy family time. We like to play games
indoors and out, eat, and spend time around the bonfire talking and
Family is very important to me
and I appreciate families entrusting their children to my care. These
children teach me more than you could have ever imagine. I am grateful
for the opportunity to work as their educator, and connect with their
families and caregivers. Boyd is about family and I feel blessed beyond
measure to be a part of it.
