Special Education Teacher
Malinda Hock image

My name is Malinda Hock and I am a Special Education teacher at the elementary. I have been teaching at Southern Elementary School since August 2015. I attend college at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, where I received a degree in Elementary Education (2008) and I received a Masters in Special Education K-6 also from the University of Nebraska at Kearney (2017). I grew up in Kearney, Ne where I attended Kearney Public Schools and graduated in 1999. I married my husband Rod in March 2004 and we have 3 children. Izabel is 14 and is a freshman at Beatrice HIgh School, Greyson is 6 and is a 1st grader at Southern Elementary, and Stella who is 3 years old and attends preschool in Beatrice. We have lived in Kearney and Lincoln and we moved to Beatrice in the summer of 2015. My family and I enjoy family movie nights and anything outdoors. My favorite things about working at Southern are the students and the staff. The students work hard and always try to do their best. I also love seeing students learn and discover new things. The staff is fun to work with and are always collaborating and sharing ideas to do better for the students.
