I have taught in the public school system for 19 years in grades 1-5. I also taught language arts for grades 6-8 in private school for a year.
I am a facilitator. It is my job to define learning expectations to my students then give them the tools they need to succeed.
The greatest honors I receive are the thank you's from my students. There is nothing more special than finding a note on my desk from one of my kiddos.
I have an associates of science degree from Tulsa Community College as well as a bachelor's degree in elementary education from Northeastern State University. In addition, I have a master's of education degree from The University of Oklahoma.
I have been married to my husband, Chris Cagle, for 29 years. We met while serving in the United States Air Force. We have two grown children who are in their twenties, our son is following in our footsteps and is a member of the Air Force. We also adopted a former student of mine from Honduras who is 15. At home we have a pack of four legged children that include Chihuahuas, rescues, and English Bulldogs.
