I have a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Oklahoma.  I believe my job as an educator is to prepare students for the future through learning activities and experiences that equip them with essential social, emotional and academic skills they will use throughout their lives.  When I am not teaching, I can usually be found attending or watching sports with my husband and three sons!
