Fourth Grade

Hello! My name is Emily Parsons and I have been a Pawnee Cub since 2018. I graduated from California State University, Fresno in 2017 with my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I am currently a student at UNL on track to graduate with my Masters in Teaching and Learning in Spring 2021. This is my first year teaching 4th grade, I have also worked with Kindergarten and 3rd Grade. I am honored to work with Pawnee families and students! 

I moved here from Clovis, California, where I was born and raised. I enjoy spending time with my husband, Daniel and our dog, Gus and cat, Jack. In my free time, you will find me traveling baking, playing board games, or spending time with friends. I am grateful to be a teacher at this wonderful school - Go Cubs!

Welcome to 4th Grade! I am so excited to meet you! My name is Rina Newburn, and this is my fifth year teaching. I graduated from College of Saint Mary in 2016 with my Bachelor’s degree in elementary education, a minor in Spanish, and an endorsement in English as a second language. I graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan with my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2020. When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our pets. We enjoy spending time outside, camping, and watching Marvel and Star Wars movies. 


Pawnee is a great place to be! I am excited to learn and grow with your child this year!

Fourth Grade

Hello! My name is Stephanie Petak-Marco but I go by Mrs. Marco in the classroom. I have been teaching fourth grade at Pawnee since 2012, and this year I am teaching a Third/Fourth grade combo classroom. I subbed for 2 years in various classrooms K-6 prior to working at Pawnee and I started out as a paraprofessional for 3 years for fourth grade while attending UNO. I love watching my students learn and grow. I encourage students to collaborate with one another and to build unity in our classroom.

My husband’s name is Frank. We have a wonderful, busy son named Dylan who turned 6 in May and then our daughter, Makenzie, turned 3 last May. We are very active and always looking for fun and exciting events and activities to do. We also have two kitties named Sunkist and Murphy. I love to stay active myself by playing different sports and games of all kinds, particularly volleyball, yard games & board games (which happens far less now that I chase around 2 active kiddos 😊). My family and friends are definitely a very important part of my life. 

 
I am looking forward to a fantastic year! Go Cubs :)
