I have been teaching at Byng High School for 16 years. I am currently teaching algebra II, pre-AP algebra II, pre-calculus, and AP Calculus AB. I am the sponsor for all interscholastic contests as well as the sponsor for the Byng Chapter of the National Honor Society.
I began my teaching career at Pleasant Grove School in Seminole, Oklahoma in 1991.
In 1992, my husband and I moved to Ochelata, Oklahoma and both taught at Caney Valley Schools. My teaching assignment at CVS included middle school math (6-8), pre-algebra, algebra I, geometry, and computer programming. I loved our time at Caney Valley! I learned so much from many great teachers and made life-long friends.
I joined the Byng High School faculty in 2000. In addition to what I am currently teaching, I have also taught 8th grade math remediation, geometry, pre-AP geometry and applied math at Byng. Byng is a wonderful school district and I am blessed to work here and to have raised my own kids here!
I am grateful for the many blessings in my life. I love being a wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend and teacher. I want to live every day loving God and loving people.
I am happily married to the smartest, most genuine man I know. Clint and I met in college and have been married since 1989. We have two wonderful kids, Caleb and Lanie. Caleb graduated from Byng in 2013 and Lanie graduated from Byng in 2015. Caleb is now employed at Oklahoma Christian University. Lanie is a senior at OC. We are extremely proud of both of them and are excited to see what their futures hold.
I am thankful to live in a close-knit community and to work in one of the best school districts in the world. My co-workers and students at Byng are not simply the people I work with and teach, they truly are my second family.
In my spare time, I enjoy jogging, reading and spending time with my family.
