Hello My Name Is...

Tami James

I am a graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma and currently in my twenty-seventh year of teaching.  I have taught students from first grade to ninth grade spending the first nine years of teaching experience in special education classrooms.  After spending the next ten years teaching first, second, and fifth grade students, I returned to a student resource position.  This is my sixteenth year as an employee with the Deer Creek District.

In addition to wearing a Deer Creek Teacher Hat ---- I have three precious children who have grown up in the blink of an eye!  I believe Deer Creek Public Schools offers the best education a child could receive and I am pleased my children received their education in this progressive district.  Rachel, a graduate of OU, will join the DC faculty as a teacher at Grove Valley Elementary.  My son, Derek is a graduate of Oklahoma Christian University and works in Wichita, KS in the oil and gas industry.  Dacia is a graduate from OU School of Nursing and loves her job as a kidney transplant coordinator.  Dacia and her husband Zac have blessed me with two darling granddaughters.  Makinlee and Zoey brings such joy to our family and I love being GiGi!
