Kindergarten Kindness Reading Party New Teacher Mrs. Curlo By Rachel Linden Mrs. Elizabeth Curlo graduated from Loup City High School in 2005. She graduated from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 2010 with a degree in Elementary Education and Span- ish. In 2010, she also received her Master’s Degree in Spanish Education. She enjoys interacting with stu- dents of all ages and teaching them how to converse and inter- pret information in a different language. Curlo said, “It’s amaz- ing how fast our little students can learn a foreign language and how easily they can use certain vocabulary in context.” She loves seeing her high schoolers succeed and to see them pro- gress from learning simple vocabulary to reading full paragraphs in Spanish. Mrs. Curlo is planning to take high school students from Ansley and Litchfield to Europe in June of 2019. She is a go- getter when it comes to fundraising to make sure this trip can happen for her amazing students. She was born and raised in Ashton, Nebraska. Her Husband Kev is also from there. They have a three-year-old daughter, El- la, and are expecting a new bundle of joy this summer. They have no interest in living anywhere else due to their families still being around the area. When she took this job she was so excit- ed to be able to teach close to home. Previously, she taught 2 years in Red Cloud and four years at Doniphan-Trumbull. Mrs. Curlo has been a great addition to our school and we hope that she likes our small community! ■ 9. Quiz Bowl/ Sing Around Nebraska 10. Honor Roll/ Igloo 11-13. Counselors Corner 14.
