Previous Position:

Teaching is my second career.I started teaching in 2007 in Foyil Public Schools.  After 2 years, I took a job with Union Public Schools teaching 4th and 5th grades.

In 2011 I was awarded a grant from Fund for Teachers to travel with 2 other teachers to Australia.  We researched literacy in Australian elementary public schools.  We visited schools in Darwin, Sydney, and Melbourne.  It was an amazing experience and I have many artifacts from the trip in my room that I use as teaching aids.

My husband Matt and I have been married for 27 years.  We have 2 children, Noah and Olivia.  Noah attends OSU-IT and Olivia is a sophmore at Claremore High School.

I have the coolest cat in the world named Jaggers, a Great Pyrenes named Cassie, and a rambunctious chinchilla named Chili.                                             


Personal Information

I love to travel, spend time with my friends and family, and go camping.  My favorite food is homemade mac-n-cheese, and I just recently discovered Iced Chai Tea lattes...YUM! My extended family lives in Texas and Delaware so my family travels often to visit with them.

When I am not teaching, I love to watch movies, play Farkle and Scrabble.
