I am excited to be here at Gainesville Junior High for my fifth year! This is my twenty-fifth year as an educator.  I have served in a variety of educational roles from teaching special edcuation classes and science classes to acting as a school counselor.  This year I am moving to the English Language Arts department to teach 8th grade Literacy and Pre-AP English I for 8th graders.  My education includes a bachelor's degree in the area of science from Oklahoma City University and a Master's Degree in Education focused on school counseling from Southeastern Oklahoma University. In my free time I love to travel A LOT, and play golf.  In the fall, you will catch me at a football game almost every weekend.   I am looking forward to the 2020-2021 school year and all that it has to offer to Positively Impact Every Leopard, Everyday!
