Wauneta-Palisade Schools welcomes three new teachers
Summer is almost over, and school is back in session. Helping welcome 2017-2018 Wauneta-Palisade Schools’ students are two new faces and one returning; Karmin Church, Marissa McDaniel and Lisa McAlevy.
McAlevy taught for two years, and took a one year break.
Karmin Church, originally from Benkelman, will be teaching fifth and sixth grade language arts and social studies. She attended Chadron State College where she received her bachelors degree.
Church and her husband Cliff Church, who works for Frenchman Valley Coop, live in Imperial. Their son lives in Boulder, Colo. and their daughter and her family lives in Chadron.
K. Church taught Family and Consumer Science at Dundy County-Stratton High School for two years. She was also the alternative education teacher for the ESU at the Wellington School in Imperial for the last 12 years. As of this year the Wellington School has been shut down.
“I am really looking forward to working with middle school students, this is one of my favorite age groups. WP seems to have a very positive environment that is student focused. Teachers have been so friendly and helpful,” said K. Church.
Marissa McDaniel, a Washington, N.C. native, is teaching fifth and sixth grade math and science. McDaniel met her husband, an Imperial native, while he was stationed in Fayetteville, N.C. when he was in the Army. After spending a summer in Nebraska, the couple decided it was time to move back.
