Hi! My name is Jill Stark and I have been teaching K-12 Music at the Niobrara School for a total of 19 years. The past four years I have worked as a school librarian also.
I’m married to Bruce Stark and we have three children, Lexie, Tyler, and Tommy. Bruce works for Pease Plumbing, Lexie lives and works in Lincoln, Tyler is a children’s psychiatric nurse at Bryan in Lincoln, and Tommy works for Flenniken Electric out of Neligh. Niobrara has been our home since 2006 and all three of my kids graduated from here. In my spare time, I like to travel, read, and do things with family.
I graduated in 1983 from Iowa Wesleyan College with a Bachelor of Music Education and have been working on my School Library-Media Endorsement from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. My endorsement will be finished in December of 2019! I have taught in many different schools in Nebraska since graduating college. I have taught at Niobrara three times in my career, Clarks Public School, Santee Public School, Santee Head Start, Neligh-Oakdale Public School, and Bloomfield Public School.
I enjoy working with my students and consider myself to be one of the lucky teachers who has the opportunity to teach them from Kindergarten to graduation.
