Get to know your teacher

Hi, my name is Doris Cheney, I have been teaching at Tescott Elementary for 3 years. My first 2 years were teaching first grade and now I'm teaching third grade. I look forward to the new adventures I'll have in third grade and am very excited to introduce new things to my students. There is always something new I am learning and love the opportunity to introduce those things in my classroom. Some of the new things incorporated this year are: Zearn, families and "our" morning meetings. 

I have my Bachelor's of Arts in elementary education from Kansas Wesleyan University. My family and I currently live in Salina. I have 3 wonderful kids, with their own personalities, and love spending as much time as I can with them. I enjoy golfing with my husband, when we can find time, and listening to music and reading a good book. 

I am a lifelong resident of the USD 240 school district, having been raised and educated at Tescott schools, graduating in 1989.  I attended Fort Hays State University and received a Bachelors and Masters degree in Elementary Education. I have taught third, fourth, and fifth grades at Bennington Elementary since 1994.  My husband Brad and I, also a THS graduate,  reside in Tescott. We are actively involved in church and community activities, and enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy gardening, crafting, and watching movies.

Hi I’m Jill Werner.  I am originally from Minneapolis, Kansas where I attended grade school, middle and high school.   I received my Bachelor and Masters degree in Elementary Education from Kansas State University.  I have taught third grade in USD 240 for 35 years.  

I currently live in Salina, Kansas.  I have one daughter named Cassie.  I attend First Covenant Church in Salina.  I enjoy walking, cooking, spending time with friends and family, teaching art and traveling.  I look forward to a  positive and productive school year with your child.
