Lincoln Elementary | Second Grade

‚ÄčMy name is Heather Hupfer. I am originally from North Platte, Nebraska and graduated from North Platte High School. I received my Bachelor of Science in Education degree from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, and my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Doane University.

I am married to John Hupfer. He is employed by the United States Postal Service. We have four children – two NPHS graduates, one NPHS Junior, and one NPHS Sophomore.

I am a Second Grade Teacher at Lincoln Elementary School. Before teaching in the North Platte Public Schools, I served as the director for the Retired Senior Volunteer Program - sponsored by the City of North Platte and the Corporation for National and Community Service.  Prior to that position, I had the privilege of working as a One-on-One para educator for a non-English speaking/Special Education student at Elliott Elementary School in Lincoln, Nebraska.
