Mr. Kent Ropers

I began my teaching career in Taylor-Loup County and spent 5 years there before teaching for 20 years in Axtell, Nebraska. I started in Diller-Odell in 2011. Currently I teach Biology, Earth Science, Anatomy and Physiology, Applied Science, and Chemistry. I coach High School Football and Track, and I am the Athletic Director.

I earned a BS from Kearney State College in Biology/Chemistry and a Masters degree from the University of Nebraska-Kearney in Science Teaching.

I enjoy golf, hunting, fishing, basketball officiating, and spending time with my family. My wife Dori and I have two sons, Kyle, who lives in Lincoln with his wife Amie, and Patrick, who lives in Elwood.
