I am thrilled to be teaching 4th grade at Park Hill this year!  I have previously taught both second and third grades. I am also licensed as a Reading Specialist. I hold a BA in History from the University of Oklahoma (Boomer Sooner!); a BA in Elementary Education and a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Wichita State (Go Shockers!!). My family includes my husband, Boyd; two sons, Donny & Michael; a beautiful daughter-in-law, Karly; and two adorable grandkids, Asher and Braylee!

I believe that the primary job of a teacher is to help students to become self-reliant, compassionate, and productive members of our community. As a teacher, I strive to motivate, encourage, and guide my students to develop the skills necessary to reason and solve problems for themselves, rather than to merely dispense information to them. I aim to create a positive, safe, and enticing classroom environment that is conducive to learning for all students; hoping to engage their intrinsic desire to learn!

A classroom is so much more than tables, chairs and textbooks! It is a vibrant social community and I am optimistic that I will learn as much (or more) from my students as I hope they will learn from me!
