Why TSAS? The main reason I chose to be at TSAS was how inclusive the culture is and how encouraging and accepting the staff are of all the students. I love how the school is constantly changing to best help the students. I am excited to be apart of this team and help it continue to grow!

Interesting Facts: I grew up attending comic-book conventions and ended up marrying a comic-book artist and writer. We have two lovely cats who were both rescues that we now spoil: Cheshire and Louise.

College: Bachelor of Arts in English Education from Northeastern State University and a Master’s of Education in Educational Administration from the University of Oklahoma

Why TSAS? I work with students because they give me life, make me better, and help me know and love my world more profoundly than I ever could without them. I choose to do this at TSAS because TSAS is a school where every adult and student is profoundly known and valued. TSAS students are the kind of people our world needs as neighbors, doctors, artists, politicians, servers, inventors, thinkers, and friends.   

Interesting Fact: My family; Amanda, Adrian, and David are beautiful and sensational. Aside from working at the best school in the world, I watch a lot of TV, eat a lot of food, read a lot of books, referee adult soccer, and work on my house.

Why TSAS? I believe the heart of education rests within the hands of teachers, and TSAS recognizes and elevates this philosophy. It is a place where teachers give students the tools to grow and learn in dynamic classrooms. TSAS cultivates an environment of rich academic preparation while appreciating the unique needs and interests of the individuals we are and we want to become. I am honored to work alongside everyone who calls TSAS home.

Interesting Facts: Some of my favorites: Coca-Cola, The Beatles, Wendell Berry, Z104.5, Ford pick-up trucks, supreme pizza without sausage, Motown, Kentucky Wildcat Basketball, travel, chocolate…

Why TSAS? When I imagined becoming a teacher and being part of a school, this place is what I pictured. The freedom of the teacher, the encouragement of curiosity, and the positive interactions between students and faculty match what I wanted to see happen. This place feels like home to me.

Interesting Fact: Sometimes when I am driving I catch myself singing Paul Simon’s “Still Crazy After All These Years” in the key of Michael McDonald. After that, I like reading books, listening to vinyl records, and watching / analyzing / writing about film and television. I dream about hiking and go occasionally. I love NY Times crossword puzzles.
