Mrs. Tellus 6-3 ELA and Reading

Hi! I'm Mrs. Tellus! I started teaching ELA in 2017, and joined the Horizon staff in 2021. I graduated from the University of Nebraska with a Bachelor's in K-12 Music Education and 7-12 English. At Horizon I am the Head Cross Country coach and an assistant Track coach.
My family consists of my husband, Andrew, who works for First National Bank of Omaha, and our golden retriever. In my spare time I enjoy running, reading, and spending time with family.
