I started my career with Tulsa Public Schools in 1992 as a special education teacher and since then have worked in numerous grade levels and positions. I am starting my 26th year with Tulsa Public Schools and my 10th year at Kerr Elementary. I am a native Tulsan, graduated from Booker T. Washington High School and attended William Woods University in Fulton, Missouri. I have a master’s degree from Oklahoma State University. Teaching has always been my passion and it is all I have ever wanted to do. My hobbies include art and anything having to do with being creative, including crazy outfits. I enjoy spending time with my family and shopping for antiques. I love my family at Kerr and consider this to be my TPS home. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
I will work hard every day to support this caring and vibrant learning community. Before I became the assistant principal at Kerr, I served as a reading specialist at Salk Elementary and a was a multiage preschool teacher at Trinity Day School. I am a fourth generation Tulsan who loves this city. It is a great place to raise children. I am a product of Tulsa Public Schools (as are my children). I went to college in Oklahoma, too. I started my undergrad work at OSU and finished it at TU, and I received my M.Ed. from OU. Many call me a word nerd, so it should be no surprise that learning is my great passion. I have a heart for working with children to ensure that they have the opportunity to learn more about the world, its people, and its languages. I consider education to be my calling. In my free time, I like to read, work puzzles, bake, and travel. My door is open, so please come visit me!
