I graduated from Glencoe High School in 2002. Glencoe is located in Payne County just Northeast of Stillwater.
I am a 2004 graduate of Northern Oklahoma College with an Associates of Art in Elementary Education.
I graduated from Oklahoma State University in 2006. OSU is a family business as my dad is alumni as well. My husband is also OSU Alumni and both of our children plan to attend school there. Go Pokes!
I hold an Associates of Art in Elementary Education from NOC and a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from OSU. I am certified to teach any grade and subject in 1st-8th grade. I also have specific certifications in middle school and secondary English/Language Arts. I have also taught yearbook/journalism.
I have attended Advanced Placement Summer Institutes for 4 summers at TU and OU.
This is my first year at Tonkawa High School and my 9th full year of teaching.
I have previously taught in Newkirk, Billings, and Braman school districts. I have taught 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th-12th.
My husband, Justin, and I have been married for over 13 years. We have two children: Allie is 9 and Austin is 7.
We have lived in Tonkawa for almost 9 years now. We have a dachshund named Paco.
I enjoy spending time and playing with my kids, spending time with my husband, reading, and going to the lake.
