Angela teaches kindergarten at West Bay Elementary in Elkhorn and Tim teaches Social Studies at Millard West High School. They live in the heart of the district with their two amazing daughters, Annabeth and Ellison.
Tim has taught more than 1,600 students in a variety of classes: World Geography, Law Studies, World History, AP US History, AP European History, AP World History, and United States Government and Economics. He also coached debate for eight years, helping the Millard West debate team earn five consecutive state championships.
Tim was honored to represent Nebraska’s excellent schools as the 2016 Nebraska Teacher of the Year. He was also named to the Millard Alumni Hall of Fame and was part of the 2017 class of Ten Outstanding Young Omahans in recognition of his work in education.
In addition to working in the classroom for the past twelve years, Tim has been an active member of the Millard Education Association (MEA), serving as the MEA’s Chief Negotiator. Tim has worked on multiple contracts for the teachers in Millard, and has had the unique opportunity to develop effective budgets, policy language, and to tackle the challenges of health insurance and other benefits.
