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!

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, with last year teaching a Third/Fourth grade combo classroom. I subbed for two years in various K-6 classrooms prior to working at Pawnee and I started out as a paraprofessional for three 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 7 in May and we have a wonderful, strong-willed daughter, Makenzie, who turned 4, also in May. We are very active and always looking for fun and exciting events and activities to do. We have a cat, Murphy and a puppy, Teddy. 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 :)

Fourth/Fifth Grade Combo

My name is Miss Paula Badura. I have been at Pawnee since 1999. I have taught fourth, fifth, and sixth grades, but have been known to teach our younger students in our after-school programs and during summer school. I am also a Pawnee alumnus. I began my education in the Pawnee kindergarten. I take great pride in my job and helping our students succeed.
