Tammy Duesler, 2nd grade
It is a privilege to have come full circle at Jenks Public Schools. I attended Jenks K-12 and went on to Oklahoma State. After graduation I was hired by Jenks Community Education and then accepted a position to teach 1st grade and now teach 2nd. It is wonderful to teach at the same school where so many of my own teachers and administrators expected nothing less than my best. It is an honor to walk in their shoes.
In my classroom I nurture my children with compassion and encouragement. I guess you could call me their cheerleader.My favorite part is when a child yells out, "I Got It!" That is truly a reward in itself. I have a son that attends Jenks East and I am married to a wonderful man with 2 beautiful children.
When people ask me where I work their faces seem to light up when I say Jenks and I am proud to call it home.
