The 2020-2021 school year will be my 13th year of teaching. I have spent ten of those years in OKC Public Schools and 3 years here at Orvis! I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma, moved to Colorado to graduate from the University of Northern Colorado in 2006, and then came back to Oklahoma to start my career. I recently got married in December 2019 and I’m excited to start this school year with a new name! Here is to a new adventure in 2020-2021!
I graduated from OCU with a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education. I also have a Bachelor’s in Nutrition from OSU (go pokes!). I’m so excited about my fourth year of teaching at Orvis Risner. The Orvis community is a true family and I feel lucky to be able to serve the Edmond community that I grew up in! Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my fiancé Justin, taking our golden retriever Winnie for walks, and having game nights with friends.
I graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s degree in Reading. I am certified in the areas of Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Special Education, and as a Reading Specialist. My husband and I have two sons, two daughters-in-law and one amazing grand daughter.
