After spending two years reading, thinking, and growing in OSU’s Curriculum and Leadership Master’s program, I am eager to return to the classroom doing what I love. In my free time, I love to travel to new states and countries, dragging my husband and two teen daughters to museums and historical sites, rain or shine. While home, I continue to learn more and more about Tulsa, having lived here for seven years now. I hope to draw upon this rich history and our amazing community in order to help my students feel more connected to themselves and their place in this world.
I discovered early on that I would teach as play. My siblings and I played school regularly, nurturing a love of learning. I would like to inspire my students to develop a love of learning and to grow into knowledgeable, civic-minded, justice-oriented, members of their society. Just as an artist is compelled to create art, I am drawn to teach. I teach to engage with knowledge and people. I teach to offer a service to my community, and I teach in order to remain a student for life.
