I have always lived in and around the Tulsa area, and currently live with my wife and three cats. I spend most of my time hanging out with my family or playing games. I also enjoy scary movies, anime, and good food.

I work with our kids because I love seeing students grow and discover their self worth. They can accomplish so much if they set their mind to it, and being at TSAS I get to continue to watch their process into high school!

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.

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.

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!

Special Education Instructional Support Support

My name is Brittney James. I teach Special Education. Teaching gives me joy. I love being around my family, we have Sunday dinners each month. Last summer, I was introduced to the world of baking! I travel with my husband and we try to experience different cultures and traditions wherever we go. We are expecting our first bundle of joy in September, Titus James.

I do the work that I do because I have realized that everyone is capable of learning. Some student’s learn different than others. It encourages me when a student masters a goal or no longer needs extensive services through IEP services. The reason I teach, is because as a teacher I am able to be apart of a village that helps mold a child into a successful adult.

High School Counselor Support

I am a 4th generation Tulsan and 3rd generation OSU Alum. I love being outside, every dog that’s ever lived, candy & The Office. I am married to a TSAS alumnus (class of 2004) and together we are raising a future TSAS grad (Class of 2030) who we think is pretty great. I enjoy reading, politics and a strong cup of tea.

I work with our kids because I believe the strength and beauty of the future exists in our young people and it is an extreme honor to get to walk alongside teenagers as they move through high school. I love being part of a community that honors students autonomy & humanity first and helps them build resilience in an ever changing world.

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.
