Exeter-Milligan Open House Well Attended

Community members and students alike were interested in touring the new facilities at Exeter-Milligan during the open house Monday night.  The school has new rooms for the art and music programs along with a foreign language room.  Also in the new wing are a community classroom, a preschool classroom and a weight room open to the community.  Two new sets of bathrooms and a new commons area for concessions were also included in the addition. The new commons area is pictured below.

Laura Steuben – 3rd Grade
Hello, my name is Laura Steuben and I am the new 3rd grade teacher. I graduated from Milligan Public School and earned a B.S. in Elementary/Special Education from Nebraska Wesleyan University. I am no stranger to the E-M district as my three children (Bailey, Blake and Brock) attend E-M, I previously substitute taught here and I also student taught with Mrs. Marla Weber. For the past four years I have been teaching in the primary grades at Fillmore Central Elementary. My husband Kip, our three children and I live in Milligan. I am thrilled to be a part of the Timberwolf team and am very excited for the upcoming school year!

Brooke Neville – 5th Grade
Hello! My name is Brooke Neville. I am very excited to be teaching fifth grade this year at Exeter-Milligan! I currently live in Geneva, my hometown, with my fiancé Ashton Soukup and our daughter Clara. I recently graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a dual degree in Special Education Kindergarten-6th grade and Elementary Education Kindergarten-6th grade. While attending school I worked for Cedars Youth Services in their before and after school program, newborn childcare center, and teenage homeless shelter. I loved my job, but I have always dreamed of coming back to Fillmore County to raise my children in the small town-family oriented atmosphere I was raised in. I enjoy spending time with my family and reading. My fiancé and I also really enjoy anything outdoors, such as hiking, camping, and spending time in our garden. I am so excited to become a Timberwolf and cannot wait for the school year to start!
The adventure of life is to learn. In the 5th grade classroom there will be plenty of learning and an endless amount ofadventures! Our classroom theme will be camping/outdoors, so get ready for s’more learning and a boat load of fun!!

Treven Cerveny – 6th Grade
Hello! My name is Treven Cerveny and I am excited about being your new 6th grade teacher at Exeter-Milligan! I am originally from Wilber, NE, where my family still resides. I graduated from Wilber-Clatonia Public School in 2011. In December of 2015, I graduated from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a minor in coaching. Following graduation I began substitute teaching, completing a long-term sub position at Wilber-
Clatonia in a 6th grade classroom. I currently live in Lincoln. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family, friends, and watching or participating in sport activities. I am anxious for the year to begin to get to know my students and patrons of the community!

Katherine Roemmich – Resource
Hello! I'm Ms. Roemmich. I graduated high school from Fillmore Central Public Schools in 2009. After graduating high school, I received a teaching degree from Doane College and I began teaching resource at Lincoln Public School’s Lakeview Elementary. The last three years, I have worked with grades 2nd, 3rd, and 5th. This spring, I graduated from Doane College with a Master's Degree and this summer I recently got engaged! Next July, I will be Mrs. Smith! I am beyond excited to be going back to where I call “home” and beginning my next chapter at Exeter-Milligan Public Schools teaching 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade resource in the fall, as well was coaching track & field in the spring. I absolutely love teaching resource and working with athletes. It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students, while teaching with a passion so students develop a desire to learn. I am looking forward to a great year together with you and your child.

Exeter-Milligan Teachers Get Ready for the New Year

Above -Exeter-Milligan teachers started their Friday workday by pushing a bus (driven by Superintendent Paul Sheffield) down the street in front of the school.  Visible teachers from the front to the back on the left are Lorie Sliefert, Kara Myers, Marla Weber, Darcy White, Angie Murphy, Lisa Kanode and Dean Filipi.  On the right side are MaryLou Vossler, Brian Murphy and Melanie Papik.  The exercise was to remind teachers that they are all needed to push together with Sheffield leading the way to have a successful school year.

Below– Exeter-Milligan Principal Laura Kroll talks to the Exeter-Milligan teachers at the start of their first work day.  Each Exeter-Milligan students names were written on a balloon and divided among the teachers as a reminder of why the teachers are there.
