Hello My Name Is...
I am the Reading Specialist for second through fifth grades. I have been teaching at MacArthur since 1993. Teaching reading is my passion, and I love being able to teach children to "learn to read" and to "read to learn".
I graduated from Northeastern State University with a degree in Elementary Education and received my Master's from Oklahoma State University in Curriculum with a Specialty in Reading. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher in Literacy and Language Arts.
I am married and we have two children, Kyle and Katie. Kyle is married and we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter-in-law, Heather. Katie is a Special Education teacher in the Broken Arrow School District. We have two dogs named Zoe and Harley. Zoe is a papillon and Harley is a chihuahua mix.
