I have been teaching for 15 years. I began my career teaching first grade after teaching my own children and scouts for 20 years. I taught preschool for 5 years while completing my Early Childhood Education Degree. I helped write the first curriculum to begin the 4 year program in Broken Arrow, then taught 4 year olds for 10 years before moving to teach Kindergarten for the last 5 years.
I believe young children learn through play. They are busy learners, not passive. They will fine active things to do, so I might as well plan the active things I want them to do.
TOY for Arrowhead Elementary in 2002 and one of the top 10 for my district, Scout Leader of the Year
After taking years off to raise my children, I returned to school to complete my degree at Oklahoma State University. My degree is FRCD/Early Childhood Education and am certified to teach PreK through 6th.
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 40+ years. I have 2 handsome sons, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and the best grandaughter ever!
