Mary Schuster-Graff did both her undergraduate and graduate work at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She began her teaching career at Goodrich Middle School where she taught 7th grade social studies for seventeen years. Upon earning her masters degree she began counseling at Lincoln High School and was there for four years. She is very excited to be returning to middle school as a grade-level counselor. Mary’s husband Tim farms near Beatrice. Mary and her husband love to travel. The most memorable trip for Mary was a trip to China in 2012. They saw the Great Wall of China and the Terra Cotta Soldiers as well as many other spectacular and historical sites. For a former social studies teacher this was an amazing experience! They have three grown children and recently welcomed their 6th grandchild into this world.
