This is my 5th year with Jenks and I love working with the 9th grade students at the Freshman Academy! This is such an incredible time for them to try and figure out who they are and choose the path they want to continue on. I believe the Freshman Academy will give them that opportunity and I will do all I can to help them succeed as well.
Credentials: Bachelor of Science from Oklahoma State University - Family Relations and Child Development (Individual, Family, and Community Services). Certified in Family and Consumer Sciences, English (6-12), Oklahoma History/US History/Government/Economics(6-12).
Pastimes and Passions: My daughter Hailey, age 13 and son Braden, age 8. I LOVE college football (Go COWBOYS!!!!!) and Jenks! (actually I like pretty much any sporting event). Other activities I enjoy are flying, gardening, photography, travel, music, scrapbooking and anything on the History Channel/Discovery Channel.
