About Kaela Heneger

I am looking forward to another great year at Springfield Elementary. I am excited to be a part of such a fabulous community. My husband, Jeremy, and I, along with our two children, Mackenzie and Atticus, moved to Springfield in August 2014. We were impressed with how welcoming the community was and the pride people took in the school district. Springfield was the perfect fit for our family, and I am thrilled to be part of such a dedicated team of educators. Springfield Elementary has the best students, parents, and staff around. I have had the opportunity to work in several different roles throughout my career, including as a district literacy coach, Title I coordinator, third grade language arts teacher, and kindergarten teacher. I have been fortunate to work with all levels from preschool to high school. I am truly blessed to work with dedicated and passionate staff, supportive parents, and the creative, energetic students of Springfield Elementary.

BA in elementary education from Hastings College; assessment endorsement from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln; master's of education: reading specialist from the University of Nebraska-Kearney; master of educational leadership degree: administrative degree (PK-12) from Doane College; educational specialist degree from Doane College: superintendent's endorsement.

He is active in band enjoys acting in musicals/plays, listening to podcasts, and has acquired some mad cooking skills lately. He will be running cross country this fall and track in the spring. Fall is my favorite time of the year (school starts in the fall!). I grew up in Superior, Nebraska, and am the oldest of three children. I love to read, play games, and watch movies. I enjoy running and try to run in a road/trail race every couple of months. My husband and I love to cook and try new foods.

About Jennifer Beles

I have been teaching first grade for 22 years now, but it is my 24th year in our wonderful school district. I am always amazed at how much these kiddos learn in just this one school year! It is wonderful to see how much growth and learning happens. I genuinely love teaching first grade and feel the same excitement as my students do about school.

I went to Springfield Elementary when I was growing up and my parents still live (and work) in town. Actually, I teach in the very same room I sat in as a first grader. What an honor! I graduated from Platteview High School, and received my bachelor's degree and master's degree from Doane College. I have two children of my own and love spending time with my family, shopping, and reading. I couldn't ask for a better place to teach than here in the very town I grew up!

About Cindy Hudson

Hello! This is my third year working for the Springfield Platteview Community Schools, and I feel honored to be a part of this team. Prior to coming here, I spent 27 years working for the Bellevue Public Schools in a variety of roles. In Bellevue, I taught first, second, third, fifth, and sixth grades. I also held an administrative position and spent my last three years in Bellevue working as an instructional coach. I earned my bachelor's degree in elementary education at Buena Vista. I also have a master's degree in administration from the University of Nebraska-Omaha and a specialist certificate in elementary mathematics from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

A short phrase that sums up what school is all about for me is, Your biggest mistake is never learning from one. I want students to know that making mistakes is a normal part of the learning process, and that mistakes are proof that you are stepping outside of your comfort zone in order to grow.

When I'm not teaching school, I keep busy with my teen daughter and her activities. I am also blessed to be able to spend lots of time with my two sons and their families - it is very convenient when you all live in the same neighborhood!
