Barb Rieken Gross

Title:  Behavior Consultant

Email:  brieken@esu5.org

Phone:  (402) 223-5277


I began working for the Educational Service Unit 5 in August 2016.  I consult with nine ESU 5 districts to coordinate behavioral services, develop behavioral intervention plans, observe and problem-solve with staff, and provide behavioral assessment.  I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Omaha with a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary and Special Education and received a Masters' degree in Special Education, Behavior Disorders from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln.  

I have two daughters, Allie and Lauryn. Allie is a doctoral student at Texas A&M, majoring in school psychology. Lauryn is 16 and a high school sophomore at Beatrice High School. She is in Limited Edition, and works at Runza. She is a self-proclaimed Harry Potter and Game of Thrones nerd! My favorite hobby right now is all things tennis! I played in high school for four years, but just recently started again about five years ago. I play in two leagues in Lincoln, year-round. I also enjoy doing educational research, reading all different types of literature, attending my daughter's events, and attending musical concerts of all different genres, but mostly rock and alternative rock.
