I began working at Forestburg ISD in the 2014-2015. I began working in the Special Education Department, Life Skills classroom and continued in that position through the end of the 2018-2019 school year. The 2019-2020 school year I moved to the position of JH/HS inclusion aide and elementary resource aide for the Special Education Department.
Upon the completion of my Bachelor Degree in the summer 2020, I became the Business Instructor for JH/HS. I currently teach classes in Business Information Management, Finance, Marketing, Graphic Design and Career Exploration.
I have served as Director to Jr. High One Act Play and Assistant Director to HS OAP since 2017-2018.
I am the mother of two children. My son Travis lives in Purcell, Oklahoma and works at Fowler Toyota of Norman. My daughter Amanda graduated from Era ISD in 2020 and is now attending NCTC while working at The Learning Ladder child care facility in Gainesville.
I was raised near Era and I have family ties to the Era, Rosston and Forestburg communities. My mother was raised on the same farm I grew up on west of Era and graduated from high school there. My father’s family lived between Forestburg and Rosston and he and his siblings attended Freemound, Forestburg and Era schools.
Upon my graduation from Era High School I moved to Gainesville where I lived for the next twenty years. In 2015 I moved to the Rosston community where I currently live with my daughter, my cousin Becky and a large array of cats and dogs.
