Osgood Elementary | 2nd Grade
Hi, I am Jami O’Rourke Mendenhall. I am a 2nd grade teacher in the North Platte Public School District. Before coming to North Platte I taught elementary school in Central City, Lincoln, and Lexington.
I grew up on a farm near Stromsburg, Nebraska. Following high school I attended the University of Nebraska at Kearney where I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I also have a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Doane College.
My husband, Mark, works at Farm Bureau Financial Services here in North Platte. We have three grown children all who attended the North Platte Public Schools. We have four grandchildren. I enjoy travel, reading, and spending time with my children and grandchildren. I have been involved in many community activities.
I am so fortunate to work with wonderful children on a daily basis. I believe all children can learn and that learning is truly a gift that lasts a life-time.
