I’m ecstatic to have a new role at Okmulgee Primary School. I’m a Reading Interventionist. I hope to inspire struggling readers to develop a life-long love of visiting exotic places, following a process to produce a desired outcome, learn new things, inform themselves on events happening in this world, and escape to an imaginary world when they have the time for reading for the joy of reading.
I’ve been in Okmulgee classrooms teaching both 1st and 3rd grades for the past 16 years. I was at Drumright Public Schools at various grade levels for 13 years prior. I live for the “lightbulb” moment that a reader realizes that they can do this! I know how critical it is for all people to be able to interact with the written word in order to reach a successful and enriched life.
