Current Position:

I am starting my 12th year teaching math at Okmullgee Public Schools.  Over the years I have taught 6th grade Math, 7th grade Math, 8th grade Pre-algebra, 8th grade Algebra I (for high school credit), STEM, Personal Financial Literacy, and Intervention.  This year I am proud to say I am teaching Pre-Algebra and Personal Financial Literacy at Okmulgee High School.

Previous Position:

I spent 6 years as a teachers assistant for Jenks Three Year Old Preschool through the Community Education Program and worked at both Central Campus Mayo Building and Southeast Elementary.

My first teaching assignment was Kindergarten in August 2005 at Jenks West Elementary.  

I spent the next two years at Jenks Middle School working as a long-term substitute teacher where I taught 7th grade math, 7th grade Language Arts, Computer classes, speech/debate and an entire semester of Drama.  While covering 7th grade math and language arts it was my job to create the lesson plans and input grades into the online gradebook just like the regular classroom teacher.

Family Information:

I was born in Stillwater, OK and raised in the Tulsa area.  I attended Tulsa Public Schools,  Jenks Middle School, Union Middle School, and Catoosa High School.  I married my husband, John, in June 1983.  We have lived in Jenks for the past 21 years.  We have a 26 year old daughter who attended Jenks Public Schools and is currently taking classes to work on IT; and a son who is 40 that lives in Indianapolis, IN with his wife and three kids.  We currently have a 8 year old Maine Coon cat named Random.
