I spent Kindergarten and 5th grade in German public schools because my mother was participating in a teaching exchange. My absolute favorite place to be is in nature. I enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, and kayaking the most. I collect rocks, bones, and whatever else strikes me as “cool” from my hikes. As a child, my dream was to be a professional ballroom dancer or anything in the equine profession.

I work with our kids because my life and career goal has always been to do whatever I can to be an ally and help support those who are faced with greater life and educational challenges. I truly believe all people are capable of learning and flourishing in their lives, provided they are given the opportunity, no matter their individual circumstances. Being able to help provide those opportunities is why I do what I do.

Jay has been part of TSAS for many years at two different buildings. In that time, he has become a vital, cherished member of the TSAS staff and is one of the most popular figures in the TSAS halls among students and teachers. His constant hard work and care to ensure TSAS is safe and ready for students to learn has been a constant support and crucial part of TSAS culture for so long. We could not imagine our school without Jay!

MS and HS Special Education Teacher Support

As well as a teacher, I am a Board Certified Music Therapist and have experience working with long-term/chronic pediatric patients at a children’s hospital. Working at TSAS has inspired me to go back to school to pursue a master’s in special education. TSAS has also gifted me with a new passion: learning, and helping others to do the same. I’m obsessed with my cats, and I like to get outside as much as possible.

I teach to ensure ALL students have equitable education and can reach their ambitious life goals. We are all still learning.

I look forward to going to work every day to assist the students of TSAS. I enjoy traveling, gardening, and reading. I am married and have a son who attends my alma mater, OSU. We have two cats, and one dog. I dream of living on a small acreage of land, keeping bees, and growing organic fruits and vegetables.

My wife and I have one senior cat (G’ma Kitty) and many more critters planned to join us. I’m definitely a serial hobbyist but have a particular affinity for music and sustainable, organic gardening/farming. We look forward to expanding our little homestead and have many dreams we are putting to action. Just a heads up, I’ve never been particularly good at light conversation. 

I believe that education done right is liberating and it’s with that notion I embarked on this journey. There is no discipline that is more true than in special education. At TSAS, it is my dream -our collective dream- to build the most inclusive special education programming in the state of Oklahoma and for that to be a model to all others. That’s the labor I’m set out to do and that’s why I continue this work.
