I am from Owasso, Oklahoma. I graduated from Northeastern State University, Tahlequah, Oklahoma in the fall of 1990. I began my teaching career in the spring of 1993 as an Elementary Music teacher at Miami, Oklahoma. I taught music for 10 years and then I began teaching in a combined classroom of 3rd - 6th graders at Mt. Olive Lutheran School, Miami, Oklahoma. I taught at Mt. Olive for 4 years before moving to Joplin, MO. This is my second year at Martin Luther School where I teach 3rd grade.
Some of my favorite Bible verses are:
John 3:16 and Psalm 46:10- Be Still and Know That I am God. A lot of times I forget to be still and let God have control.
I love working with kids because they view the world as all of us should, with complete honesty. Kids have a better insight on the world than most adults. It also keeps me young.
