Sixth Grade

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.

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

Fifth Grade

Hi, my name is Karrie Goff and I began teaching at Pawnee in 2015. Since I began teaching, I have taught second, third, fifth and sixth grades. Science and math are definitely my favorite subjects.

I moved here from Austin, Texas, where I was born and raised. I love spending time with my husband Tom and my 2 children Carson and Ella. We enjoy spending time outdoors hiking, golfing, racing and having fun. In my free time I like to bake, craft, and spend time with friends.

I am inspired by my students everyday and continually learn form them.
