Currently pursuing M.Ed. Teaching (Spanish) - Northeastern State
NIHS Teacher of the Year 2004-2005
I absolutely love teaching. It is my passion and my calling in
life. I have been teaching for 21 years. All of my teaching
experience has been in Broken Arrow at North
Intermediate High School, until the official close of the school at the
end of the 2013-2014 school year. I plan on continuing to be a high school
classroom teacher until I retire. My students inspire me, make me
laugh, and more often than not, it is them who teach me many life
I am enthusiastic, passionate, driven, goal-oriented, and positive
minded. I always encourage my students to work hard and never give
up, no matter how difficult the task.
Every student is precious and has special gifts and talents. I
believe it is my mission in life to encourage young people and help them
to believe in themselves.
Spanish is the subject I teach, but overall, my objective is to
motivate, inspire, encourage, and lead young people.
It is my pleasure to have these precious young people in my life, if
even for a short while!
