I began teaching at Byng from 2008 and continue teaching at this awesome school. I feel blessed working 29 years, as an educator. This year my focus is on instructing English II, III, & IV classes.
My teaching career began at Stonewall Public Schools, from 1987 until 2008. During my years at Stonewall, I was introduced to various online resources, which I continue to incorporate in my teaching curriculum. I have been very fortunate to always have the support of administration to provide the materials that incorporate and foster the growing area of technology, for my students.
My husband, Rick, and I have been married for 35 years. We have three adult children (Ricky, Anthony and wife Debora, and Rachelle) and three grandchildren Caden, Evan, and Sari).
Rick and I enjoy spending time with each other, our family, and friends. We are definitely OU and Thunder fans!
