TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 31 years of teaching experience - 23 of those teaching in a small school setting where I was the ONLY math teacher. I currently teach in a large urban school, teaching Algebra I, Pre-AP Calculus and AP Calculus. I helped co-create our Algebra I curriculum to aid in success on the state tests. Scores went from 21% to over 80% since we rewrote the curriculum.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe math is a class attached to a student's self-esteem. If they believe in themselves and believe they can do it, they will succeed. Sometimes, I have to build the self esteem before I can begin to teach the math.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Teacher of the Year at Shawnee HS, Macomb PS and Coyle PS. I was also an Oklahoma Teacher of the Year finalist. I won the Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching in 1995 and I am a National Board Certified Teacher in Early Adolescent Math. However, being selected by a student to attend the Academic All State Banquet was one of the greatest honors I have ever received.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Attended Oklahoma State University (Go Pokes) for most of my undergraduate work. Then I transfered to the Unversity of Central Oklahoma where I graduated with my Bachelors of Science degree. After a LONG wait, I graduated from East Central University with my Masters Degree in high school counseling.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My husband Chris and I are blessed with 2 wonderful adult children and their spouses. Ashley and her husband, Marcus, live in Yukon. Christopher and his wife, Jody, live in Cushing. They have 4 beautiful babies - Landon, Lauren, Blake and our newest arrival - Lance.
