I am a native of Checotah, Oklahoma and graduated from high school there in 1989. I attended college at Phillips University in Enid, Oklahoma and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1993. I am currently working on a Master of Science in Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Kansas.
I taught a special needs classroom at Checotah Elementary for seven years. My students were in grades K through 5. This is my first year as a third-grade teacher and my first year at Okmulgee Public Schools. Go Bulldogs!
