I started my educational career at Lone Grove. I started as a substitute in the Primary and Intermediate buildings. After subing for 2 years, I was asked to take a paraprofessional position at the Primary building and found I loved working with special needs students. I then moved to Ada and began working at Byng Schools during the 2013-14 school year as a paraprofessional at the Junior High. I began teaching special education in 2014 and have been here ever since. I have taught at the Elementary building for one semester and will miss that position. I enjoy working at Byng and working with my students. Beginning with the 2017-18 school year I will be at Byng High School Room 2. I teach students in 10 through 12 grade special educaiton.
I have many other work experiences. I have worked in the legal field, insurance field, and human resources. I have worked for the Supreme Court of Idaho, a worker compensation attorney, and was the human resources rep for a nursing home in Kansas. My favorite position of all time, is teaching.
I am married to a wonderful man that works for Ada Coca Cola and we have been married a long time. I have four children of my own, three step children, we are guardians of our nephew, and we have one foster daughter. I have six grandaughters and three grandsons. We just recenlty bought a home in Byng, not too far from the High School. I love living in the Byng area.
I love to read new books and old ones too. I like to crochet and cross-stich. My kids keep me pretty business, my daughter is on the Oklahoma Trotters at Byng and she is fairly busy and keeps me hopping. I like to go to the movies with my family. I love relaxing at home with my family most of the time.
