I have taught for 27 years. I have taught second, fourth, and currently fifth grade.
My style of teaching, is with the use of hands on, coooperative learning, and problem/solution methods.
I was awarded Teacher of the Year for the 2009-2010 school year.
I graduated from Northeastern State University in Oklahoma, in 1985 with a Bachelor of Science in ElementaryEducation and a minor in Early Childhood.
I love what I do and am very fortunate to have worked with so many students throughout my career. I have a wonderful family of five girls, two son-in-laws and a loving, supportive husband. I am blessed.
