About Me

I have been a part of the Poteau Public School family since 2011. I began my career with Poteau as the co-director of the Drug Free Coalition Federal program and then moved to PKMS to teach Family and Consumer Sciences to students in grades 6th, 7th , and 8th. Formerly known as Home Economics, FACS focuses on leadership, family, and citizenship skills, as well as, problem solving, time management, meal preparation, grooming, hygiene, and sewing or sewing construction. I love this age group because they give as much as they receive. I am now in the Special Education Department and Co-Teach in ELA and one Math class. The students I work with are so full of knowledge and I am so grateful for the position I have.

A 1998 graduate from Cameron, Oklahoma, I am grateful to be a part of such a unique place as PHS where students get to learn and have such a variety of opportunities.  My primary goal as a teacher is to help each student recognize their own potential and worth as an individual and member of society.

I live in Poteau with my husband of 24 years.  We have 2 daughters, 1 son, and our bonus daughter and husband who has given us 2 beautiful grandbabies.  We enjoy family time, traveling, and participating in community events.  I am an avid reader and my favorite day would be on a beach with my family soaking up sun with a good book!
