I graduated from Okmulgee High School in 1990 and decided to pursue a degree in education. I attended NSU and earned a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education.
I started teaching 3rd grade at Bixby Public Schools. I taught at Bixby for 11 years. In 2005 I was offered a kindergarten position at Morris. In order to get closer to home I reluctantly accepted the position. I have been at Morris ever since and I have not regretted teaching kindergarten once. This is where my heart is. I did teach 1st grade for one year and quickly decided that kindergarten is where I was meant to be.
I am married to my wonderful husband Chris. We have 2 terrific sons, George and Woody, a fabulous daughter-in-law, Hannah, and the most precious grandbaby ever, Elliot. George, Woody, and Hannah graduated from Morris.
Chris and I live just outside of Morris with our 2 fun-loving dogs, Pete and Buddy. We enjoy spending time with our family.
