My name is Mrs. Padomek! Welcome to our 2nd grade class! This is my twelfth year teaching. I taught for three great years at Fullerton and now I'm at Saddlebrook. I feel so lucky to be a part of the Saddlebrook community! I'm looking forward to working with great staff, students, and parents again this year!
Although I was born in Memphis, TN and lived in Akron, OH for a short time, I pretty much grew up in Omaha, graduating from Millard West High School. I then went to Creighton University and earned my BS in Elementary Education in 2006. I earned my Masters degree in Reading from UNO in 2013. Going to Creighton developed my love for Bluejay Basketball-Go Jays! My husband and I enjoy going to all the home games and try to make at least one road trip a season.
In my spare time I also enjoy spending time with our two daughters and our son, and our cat, Sophie. My oldest is in 3rd grade here at Saddlebrook, and my middle child just started the ECSE pre-k room this year, having missed the kindergarten cut off by a month and a half. Although I seem to get far less done before and after school having both my girls around, I do love being able to see them throughout the day in the halls! Our youngest will be three in February. When I can find the time, I also enjoy relaxing by scrapbooking-but who am I kidding? That rarely happens these days!!
A few of my favorites:
Food-steak and potatoes, pizza, Italian
Snack-chocolate anything! especially Dove Dark Chocolate (Dark's the best!), Snickers and Chocolate Chip Cookies
Drink-Mocha or Chai Lattes, Water, PB Cup Blender from Scooters
Things to do-Travel, go to Creighton games, shop
