Hello, my name is Brett Joneson. I graduated from Brady High School in 1987. I received my Bachelor’s degree in education from UNK in 1992. I earned my Master’s Degree in Administration from UNK in 2001. I have been a teacher, coach and administrator for North Platte Public Schools for 20 years. Prior to coming to North Platte, I taught social studies at Lawrence Public Schools for 4 years.I taught 9th grade Social Studies and World History at North Platte High School for 14 years, and also coached Sophomore and Varsity Football during that time. I have taught Drivers Education for NPPS and MPCC for several years. I moved into the Administration side of education in 2012 as the Middle School Activities Director and Assistant Principal. I was given the task to implement interscholastic sports at the 8th grade level. Since its start in 2012 we have also added 7th grade into competitive sports, and have continued to add sports and clubs to provide our students with more opportunity. Activities are the other half of Education!
