I received my bachelors degree in Lawton, Ok , from Cameron University. I taught 5th grade for 12 years while I was obtaining my administration degree from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, Ok. My teaching degree is K-8 grade and I have served as an administrator at every level. I loved teaching and the classroom. I also enjoyed being an administrator as it allowed me to better help children in all faucets of their education. I have been involved with education my entire life coming from a long background of educators. I like the concept of SchoolHouse with the small group settings. Every teacher only dreams of having a small group to work with! I like the idea of teaching wholistic education: connecting all the curriculums to each other. Teaching and learning makes more sense when the dots are all connected. I would love the opportunity to teach your children!

Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy encompasses everything from hands-on-learning to a more traditional approach based on the content and activity we are working on. I believe there is a place for each of these approaches according to each students' learning level and the size and range of the learning pod. Hands on learning is my first preference but it does not always lend itself to the instructional lesson. I prefer to become familiar with each child's learning style and move forward from that. All children learn differently and it is my job as the teacher to decipher this learning style and expound on that for each child. I have taught Outcome Based Education, Great Expectations Education, and Project Based Learning. I believe Student-Centered learning is very successful with children. Children need to have a voice, choice, and autonomy to take control of their own learning. With this type of learning student engagement goes up, discipline goes down, participation goes up, incomplete work goes down, because kids have more choice and a voice in their learning.
