• How long have you been a teacher?

    This will be my 10th year as a teacher and my 10th year at Walnut Bend ISD. I love teaching children to read! My newest goal is to return to school and earn my masters degree as a Master Reading Teacher and as a Reading Specialist!

    I attended Grayson County College, Southeastern Oklahoma State University and University of North Texas. I earned my degree in Elementary Education from Southeastern.

     I have four almost five children. Maranda and Darrion are twins. Kaitlin and Savanna are at Whitesboro. Then, Jacobby will be with us soon.

    When I was growing up with my family…my mom, dad, brother and twin sisters, we lived in Gordonville. I went to school at Whitesboro from Kindergarten through 12th grade. During high school I was active in band and FFA.
     
    Both of my sisters are teachers too! Aimee teachs in Madill, Oklahoma and Alyssa teaches here in Walnut Bend!
