Prairie Vale Elementary School
I am a native of Oklahoma City. I have my Bachelor's Degree and Master's Degree from
Oklahoma State University (go Pokes!). I worked as a SoonerStart Resource Coordinator for
seven years before I became a teacher of students with special needs. I have been with Deer
Creek since 2002. I hold National Board Certification as an Exceptional Needs Specialist. I have
served as president of the Antler Association of Classroom Teachers.
I am married and have three teenage daughters: Elizabeth lives in Oklahoma City and works at
the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Abby is a student at OSU, and Kate is a student at Deer Creek
High School. I am a marathon runner, and an active member of my church where I teach Sunday
School and serve on various boards and committees. In my spare time (what's that?) I enjoy
running, reading, spending time with my family, and church activities.
To learn through play, addressing the five developmental domains, and to experience the
school setting with safety and joy.
