Why TSAS? It was my first and top choice! I absolutely love the unique diversity of the staff and students. The TSAS mission reflects what I believe education should create within our community- life long learners. By encouraging students to approach problem solving creatively, respect individual values and actively engage I feel our school promotes a holistic approach to education and learning. I am so proud to be part of the TSAS family!

Interesting fact(s): My husband and I have a 10-acre farm called ‘Blackberry Burro’ that we purchased in 2017. Our land will soon be occupied by our 5 donkeys, 3 goats, 18 hens, 3 dogs, 3 beehives and a 1973 Airstream as we continue to build our home. I love to cook and create for others. I was a horticulturist at the Tulsa Zoo prior to teaching at TSAS.

Interesting Facts: I am an MIT Master Trainer and write computer science curriculum extensions for JASON’s science curriculum. I give workshops and run “hack-a-thons” for some Texas teachers and students, so I sometimes travel to Texas. I have a great husband who supports me with everything I do, and two daughters. I love dogs and cats, but I am allergic to cats.

Why TSAS? I chose TSAS because everything I heard about it reminded me of the sort of education I received growing up. I knew I just had to be in a place where the nature of the school was to nurture the individual to strengthen the community.

Interesting Facts: I keep up with all things nerdy and love to talk about them. I can probably talk your ear off about most video games, movies, comics, or TV shows. I also randomly get a ton of beta test invites, so chances are I have played that obscure indie game you want to buy.
