Why TSAS? I prize the value TSAS places on a liberal arts education and their mission to help all students achieve their personal goals.

Interesting Facts: My teaching career began in China in 1987. Three years later, at the American Academy in Istanbul, Turkey, I adopted my life’s motto: “I want to dance with the whole world!” I have been devoted to my partner in life for nearly 30 years, the last 18 of those in our little home on the river bend near downtown Tulsa.

Why TSAS? TSAS is a different place, and I wanted to experience that! I also have a passion for middle school students and I wanted to get back to that! TSAS + middle schoolers = a magical carpet ride!

Why TSAS?I have searched for a school like TSAS as both a parent and a teacher. I love that we are a “good human” workshop. I am so fortunate that my sons are educated by well-rounded, kind teachers who are experts in their field and cool people. I am thrilled to teach here, too. TSAS is home.

Interesting Fact:I was born on a U.S. military base in a country that no longer exists.

Why TSAS? As I entered the field of education, I knew I wanted to teach in an environment that nurtured the student as a whole person rather than just a statistic. TSAS is the embodiment of all I believe education to be: individually focused and community minded.

Interesting Fact: I read magazines backward.

Why TSAS? When I moved to Tulsa, I was surprised to find a school committed to Liberal Arts education. That in its self is rare and inspiring. Since, I’ve admired the work that TSAS does to build and maintain an enriching learning community for students. I want to be a part of that work.

Interesting Facts: I have no sense of time and often have multiple alarms set on my phone. I’m into making birthday cakes for friends and family. Some might say that I can be indecisive, but I would say that I consider all options. I spend most of my time with my family and I think they’re great.
