I have been teaching since 2005. I am a certified elementary teacher with endorsements to teach early childhood and middle school science. I
I like my class to experience a concept before I try to put a name to it. I am very inquiry based when it comes to new information and I believe this paves the way for a strong foundation for skill reinforcement through guided and independent practice.
2010 Site Teacher of the Year
I attended a four year college and received my degree in elementary education with an endorsement to teach middle school science. When my husband joined the Marine Corps I added early childhood training through my employment with the Parris Island Child Development Center as their Resource Specialist. Upon returning to Oklahoma I added an early childhood endorsement to my certification.
I am a mother to three energetic boys. I am very passionate about teaching in ways that will capture and engage those wiggly little boys and create learning that they will remember long into adulthood.
