Intermediate ACP

Welcome Boyd Families and Friends!

Hello, my 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 telling stories.

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.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at

Primary ACP

Welcome to Boyd Elementary!

My name is Sandy Prentis and I teach in the Alternate Curriculum Program with the primary students in grades Kindergarten-2nd Grade. I teach students with different abilities at a variety of levels.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary and Special Education from College of Saint Mary. I also have my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Doane College. The 2020-2021 school year will be my 25th year teaching children with diverse learning needs, and I have enjoyed the joys and challenges that each day brings. I have been a proud Boyd Beaver for all this time, and I couldn’t have worked with a better group of students and staff members through the years!

My husband of almost 20 years and I have two teenage boys at home, and they keep us busy with sports and other activities. We love to get out on the boat to fish or just enjoy the outdoors, and I love to read. We also have our dog, Roxxy, at home to keep us company with everything we do.

I look forward to growing and learning with you here at Boyd. Please contact me at
