Degrees and Certifications:
This is my ninth year teaching at OES. I taught two years of 2nd grade and this is my 7th year teaching 4th grade GATE. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Sociology from the University of Delaware and a Master's degree in Elementary Education from Wilmington University. I have two beautiful daughters, one silly French Bulldog, and two crazy cats. I am originally from Delaware. There, I was a social worker and later became a teacher. I taught 4th and 5th grades. I also taught 3rd and 4th grades in Oklahoma. There is not a better profession in my mind than teaching. I am fortunate in that I have the opportunity to mold the future every single day. I believe that every child has a right to learn in a loving, risk-free environment. I take pride in providing this for my students. I'm passionate about what I do and love my job!
