In April 2015, we relocated from Tipton, OK to Vernon, TX. I was hired by Northside Independent School District in August 2015 as the Business Computer/Accounting Teacher. I am also a class sponsor and the school’s Web Master.
I have worked in the education industry since I graduated from college. I was first employeed at Western Oklahoma State College as a part-time employee in the Business Office. In 2004, I was hired full time as the Director of Student Billing. In August 2008 I made a career change when I was hired by Tipton Public Schools as the 4th grade teacher. I taught 4th grade (self-contained) until 2010, when we departmentalized. I taught Upper Elementary Math in Tipton until May 2015 when we reloated to Vernon, TX.

In 2004 I met my husband. We got married on March 4, 2006. We have 3 sons, 1 daughter, and 3 grandchildren. Our oldest son, Colten (23), lives in Tipton with his wife, Amanda, and their 2 kids, Kenleigh and Casen. Nelson (21) lives in Altus with his family, Michelle, and daughter, Whitley. Bryce (19) is our youngest son. He lives in Tipton and is working. Our baby girl, Graicyn (9), is a 4th grade student at Northside ISD. We have one dog, Maddie. She is as spoiled as our daughter! ;)
We lived in Tipton until our last son graduated in 2015. We then relocated to Vernon, TX for my husband’s job. He is employeed at Southwest Rural Electric as the Operations Manager. We are excited to be in Vernon and at Northside! We plan to make this our home for the forseeable future.
I have several activities I enjoy when I am not teaching. First and foremost, I love spending time with my family. Nothing makes me happier than being with my children, grandchildren, and husband. I prefer to be active and love to be outside. I try my best to workout on a daily basis. I have recently started golfing again, which is another activity that I can do with my family. My husband and I absolutely love to go camping. It is so relaxing! If I am not outside, I spend a lot of my time doing things around the house. I enjoy shopping, gardening, and camping. As you can see, I try my best to stay busy; however, every once in a while it is nice to veg out on the couch watching TV.
