I am a graduate of Clinton High School. I am also a graduate of Southwestern Oklahoma State University with a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a master's degree in School Psychometry. This school year is my 37th year teaching in the Clinton Public Schools. I taught 29 years in third grade before changing to reading coach eight years ago. It is a special joy to me to get to teach second generation students of mine from earlier years.
I am married with two grown children and four grandchildren. My favorite things outside of the classroom are family, church, gardening, baking, and piano.
