Cody Elementary | 3rd Grade
My name is Dawn Folchert. I am from North Platte and graduated from North Platte High. I received my Bachelor’s degree from the Kearney State College with a degree in Elementary/ Special Education K6. I received my Master’s Degree in Administration from Chadron State College in 1998.
I am married to Ken Folchert. He is employed by Patterson Dental as a sales rep. We have two sons, Kade and Zakary. Kade graduated from NPHS in 2012 and Zakary will graduate in May, 2017.
I am currently a 3rd grade elementary teacher at Cody Elementary. All my teaching experience has been for North Platte Public Schools. My first three years were as a Title 1 teacher at Jefferson, Buffalo, and Madison Middle School before moving to Cody. While at Cody, I have taught 12 years in 5th grade and the last 10 years in 3rd grade. In our spare time, our family enjoys boating, fishing, kayaking, biking, and spending time outdoors.
Our mission at Cody School is “everyone learns, grows, and succeeds.” As a teacher, I thoroughly enjoy working with children and try to share my love for learning with my students. My goal is to help children develop their own dreams for learning and to teach them the importance of an education while having fun.
