About Me

Educational History:

I am a 1983 graduate of Grove High School.  I attended one year at Northeast Oklahoma A&M College in Miami, OK and then transferred to Northeastern State University in Tahlequah where I graduated in 1990.

Degrees and Certifications:

My degree is a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education. During my time teaching in Texas, I obtained certification as an ESL Certified Instructor, which means I have been trained in the best methods and practices for instructing students who are just learning English as their second language.

Current Position:

In 2012 I decided I missed teaching way too much to stay away any longer.  I was hired to teach 2nd grade Math at the Elementary School, looping up to 3rd grade with the same group of students the next year.  I remained in 3rd grade for two more years before moving to 4th grade at the Upper Elementary in 2016.  This is now my second year on the 4th grade team. I teach Math, Science, and Social Studies, and I'm loving every minute of it.

Previous Position:

My first teaching job was in 3rd grade at Maudrie M. Walton Elementary in Fort Worth, TX.  After one year in the big city, I found I was much like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, clicking my heals and reciting "There's no place like home, there's no place like home."  I moved back home to be a Grove Ridgerunner for the next 13 years.  During that time I taught Kindergarten for 9 years, 4th grade for 3 years, and 5th grade Math for 1 year.  In 2004 I took a position with Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD in Saginaw, TX just outside Fort Worth, where I taught 1 year of 3rd grade, 3 years of 5th grade Math and 3 years of 5th grade Reading/Language Arts.

Life happened, so to speak, and our family felt the need to move back to Oklahoma in February of 2011, this time in the Jay/Maysville area.  I worked for almost a year and a half at Grand Savings Bank in Grove, first as a teller and then in the Loan Department.

 

Family Information:

I am blessed to have two beautiful daughters.  Tori graduated from Jay in 2012.  Most people recognize her as Nurse Tori in our building.  Teagan is a 2018 Jay graduate and is currently working as a teaching assistant in a 3 and 4 year old Headstart program.  

 

Personal Information:

Growing up I had two main interests:  music and reading.  With great pride, I admit I was a "band geek" and a "book nerd"!  

Some of my best memories are from years spent in the "Pride of Grove Marching Ridgerunner Band".  That love of music has continued and encompasses a pretty wide range in genres.  I don't play many instruments now, but I do find it very pleasurable to listen to music at pretty much anytime of the day or night, singing along of course.  Given the opportunity, I love attending live concerts.  

From before I can remember, my mom read to me and instilled a love of reading in my life.  As with music, I read from a variety of genres, and I like reading books that come in a series.  When my girls see me with a new book they roll their eyes and say "Great!  Mom started another book!  Looks like we're on our own for awhile!"  

In addition to music and reading, I enjoy a variety of sports, baseball being my favorite.  I am a huge Texas  Rangers fan and have season tickets to the Northwest Arkansas Naturals.
