I am thrilled to be part of the Deer Creek Intermediate 5th grade team! Deer Creek has been home for me these past 10 years having taught at Deer Creek Elementary. For 27 years I have taught in grades 2 - 8 in Oklahoma, Florida and Kansas.I received my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education from Oklahoma City University and my Master’s in Elementary Education from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, OK. I received endorsements in Special Education and Reading while living in Florida. I have also had the opportunity to work for the SRA/McGraw-Hill Publishing Co. as a consultant in Florida and Georgia.

I have been married for 43 years to my husband, Mel. We have 3 grown sons and 3 wonderful daughter-in-laws. Buddy & Jenny, Tony & Sarah, and Brian & Meg. Four beautiful grandchildren, Rachel(13), Conner(9), and Sam (7) and Jack(5) and Duke(2) Also, we have 2 dogs, Laddie & Charlie Bravo!

I enjoy being with my grandchildren, riding horses, and on those rare quite days, reading mystery novels! I look forward to a fun, productive and successful year!
