Teacher Feature: Donna Janssen
Mrs. Donna Janssen is one of the newest members of the Nebraska Christian Staff. She decided to come to Nebraska Christian because the open position in the elementary appealed to her. She wanted to be on the same school schedule with her kids, and just the fact that NC is a Christian school helped pique her interest.
Prior to working at NC, Donna had a job very similar to the one she has now. She worked with Kindergarten teachers at Aurora Elementary. But at NC, she has more responsibilities. She helps elementary teachers Charissa Smith and Denise Schrieber with whatever they need help with: preparations with classwork, monitoring recesses, and helping kids with their work. Her favorite part about her job is just getting to know all the students, teachers, and staff members at Nebraska Christian.
Donna became a Christian when she was seven years old! She went with her family to see Nicky Cruz, a young former gang member whose story is told in the best-selling book The Cross and the Switchblade. Following Cruz’s presentation, Donna received Christ.
Donna lives with her husband Steve and their two children: Benjamin (9th) and Olivia (7th).
