Meet the New Board Members

Each year, our membership has the honor and privilege of electing new leaders to our board’s leadership. Below is our serving board for th 2019-2020 year.

Jason Schmidt: President Elect

Having the opportunity to serve on the NETA board for the last 6 years has been one of the greatest professional privileges of my career. This organization has given me so much personally and professionally, and it would be my honor to continue to serve as President Elect if the membership selects me.

Rich Molettiere: Treasurer 

I am interested in continuing to serve as your NETA Treasurer. Over my previous terms, we have introduced a new online financial accounting system, moved to an almost 100% electronic payment procedure (there are still a few vendors that only take checks) as well as providing any number of reports at the discretion of the Board. Continuing to serve NETA as its Treasurer would be an honor.

Kyleigh Lewis: Board of Director 

As a 7-12 business and technology teacher, I have shared my passion for technology with many in my district and around the state. I believe one of the greatest resources available to our students is demonstrating real-world applications that will benefit them past their high school education. As a NETA board member, I would love the opportunity to continue to serve educators and students, grow a network of peers, and share fun and engaging experiences.

Paul D. Lindgren, Ph. D: Board of Director 

My thirty-two years of educational experience includes roles as parent, educational assistant, classroom teacher (junior high science), graduate-level instructor, technology coordinator, and my current position as director of technology. I hope to draw on these experiences to serve the NETA community as we maximize the impact that technology can have upon the lives and learning of our students.

Matt Moore: Board of Director

I am a problem solving, help desk serving, teacher collaborating, technology simplifying, instruction enhancing, 1:1 deploying, citizenship discussing, Google and Apple loving kind of guy. In my 10+ years in education, I continue to grow and expand these skills through organizations such as NETA. Becoming a member of NETA’s Board of Directors would allow me to utilize my strengths for serving our community. Allow me to help fuel your passion for learning!!

Nikki Schafer: Board of Director 

My name is Nikki Schafer, I am an Instructional Technology Specialist for Millard Public Schools in Omaha, Ne. This is my 10th year in education with experience in Pre-K to 12th grade. I love to work with teachers to find new and innovative ways to engage their learners. If chosen, I would work hard to help NETA be accessible to all teachers, so that everyone feels comfortable learning, growing, and teaching using innovative technology tools.

Jen Schneider: Board of Director.  

Jen Schneider teaches English at Russell Middle School in Millard in her 14th year of teaching. She is studying Instructional Technology at UNL for her PhD and developing courses in innovative education. Jen has presented at ISTE, NETA, and other local conferences and is an Edcamp Omaha organizer. Serving on the board would be an honor and allow her to continue to connect a community of purpose-driven educators that will positively impact our students.
