Hello Families! My name is Mrs. Lightfoot and This is my third year teaching at Gilder. I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education along with my ESL endorsement from College of Saint Mary in Omaha, Nebraska in 2015.  I recently completed a Primary Math Certificate (K-3rd grades) through the University of Nebraska at Lincoln.

I love spending time with my family at home. My family includes my husband Anthony, my three children Jack, Allie, and Oliver! We also have three dogs named Blue, Max and Milo.  We enjoy playing games together, going on walks and reading lots of stories.

Hello everyone! My name is Miss Hansen and this is my first year teaching at Gilder! I started out college at Columbia College in Chicago studying photography. I have always loved the arts and it is important to incorporate it into my classroom as much as possible. I later spent my time at University of Nebraska at Omaha where I earned a dual degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. I received an award through the university for excellence in early childhood education and served as president and board member for an early childhood organization in my time there. I hope to return back to school soon and work on my masters as a Reading Specialist.

My family lives in Illinois (where I'm from) so I like to travel home whenever I have free time to catch up with family and friends. I am going to get married next year and I am marrying into a big family and we are ALWAYS busy doing things. In my free time I like to read, catch up with friends, travel, and try new restaurants.
