I love television as an art form and as a tool to educate. I am a huge fan of British costume dramas, the original Perry Mason, 30 Rock, and PBS documentaries. When I’m not watching TV, I read, write, play in my garden, sing really loudly and off key, and spend time with my 3 wonderful kids and my awesome husband. I was once a publicist and the best part of the job was free books and meeting some of the most famous authors on the planet. 

I teach because I knew I would be a teacher when I was a little girl. I have always loved the joy that comes from watching a person master a concept, learn a skill or gain confidence in their own humanity. I love teaching. I have done a lot of jobs, but teaching is my calling.

I’m a proud Texan that calls Tulsa home. I enjoy flea markets, Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, 90s hip-hop, stand-up comedy, and mathematics.

I teach because I get to help youth actualize their power and position in dismantling an oppressive and dusty education system.
