3rd Grade Teacher
I attended Jay Schools starting in kindergarten. I graduated from Jay in 1997. I went to college at NEO in Miami and then on to NSU in Tahlequah.
I have an Associate in Arts degree and a Bachelor's in Education. I am early childhood and elementary certified.
I've been teaching since 2005. I started out my career in Kindergarten, then went to Transitional First, and Fourth. I then moved back to my hometown of Jay and started teaching Fifth grade in 2009. I taught Fifth grade reading for four years, then I moved to second grade in 2013. In 2018, I then moved to third grade. I love having the experience and knowledge of teaching all of these grades. I feel it gives me a sense of the overall picture of the elementary years.
I started my teaching career in Miami, OK teaching kindergarten. I also taught transitional first and fourth grade while there.
I am married to John, and we have a Dachshund / Yorkie (yes, he’s a Dorkie!) named Snarley. We enjoy going to Brush Creek to camp and swim. We like to travel some with our RV.
In my spare time, I like to make soldered jewelry, read, and play the flute.
