My name is Amy Bystrom, and this is my twelfth year at Pawnee Elementary. Being a teacher has been a dream of mine since kindergarten. My husband, Derek, and I have been married for twelve years now, and we have four amazing kids. Justin is eleven years old, Mary is eight, Niklas is five and my ‘Lil’ Joe is one year old. I definitely keep busy!
I received my Bachelor’s degree from UNO where I specialized in intermediate education. In 2011, I completed the Math in the Middle program where I received a Masters in Mathematics.
I love the fifth grade curriculum in general, but my favorite subject to teach is math! I love watching the ‘light bulbs’ go off when students finally understand a difficult concept after working so hard! I also really enjoy teaching reading and working with various techniques and strategies that help students make progress and feel successful.
