I graduated from Cushing High School in Cushing, Oklahoma in 1989. I then attended East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education in 1994. I began my teaching career as a first grade teacher at Mill Creek. I taught 1st grade for 4 years before moving to Sulphur in 1998 to teach 2nd grade. At Sulphur Public Schools I have taught Pre K, 2nd grade and 3rd grade. I was also an OPAT Parent Educator for a three years. In 2009, I completed my Masters of Education-Library Media. I have been the teacher librarian in the SES Library since 2008. In 2011, I inherited the additional position of SIS Librarian as well so I go between the two buildings daily.
I am currently certified in Early Childhood (PK-3rd), Elementary Education (1st-8th) and Library Media Specialist (PK-12th)
My husband Wes and I have two children who both attended and graduated from Sulphur Public Schools. Our son Dylan graduated in 2016 and our daughter Hannah gradated in 2019. Now both of our kids spend their days in Stillwater attending Oklahoma State University. This makes us “empty nesters” with 3 dogs and one cat to keep us company.
