About Me

Educational History:

1990 Graduate of Washita Heights High School   

1995 Graduate of SWOSU  

Degrees and Certifications:

Bachelor of Science in Natural Science Education

Bachelor of Science in Biology 

Current Position:

This is my third year with Weatherford Public Schools.  I am currently teaching Chemistry I and Chemistry II.

 

Previous Position:

I started my teaching career at Dibble High School.  I then taught at Frederick High School.  I was at Altus High School for 12 years.  After that, I taught at Hydro-Eakly High School for 5 years.

After my second year of teaching, I worked in a summer internship program at OMRF where I studied genetic variability and regulation in E. coli.  This is where I built confidence in my ability to conduct, set up, and teach labs with and for students.

I also had a summer internship at SWOSU working with Andrea Holgado.  I was allowed to see her work in neuroscience.  I gained experience in seeing how a real lab works.  I studied genes and spent time with worms of the species C. elegans.  

I have had the opportunity to help with TechTrek for 3 summers.  I really enjoyed working with my small groups of 8th grade girls as they learned more about DNA or science of the oil/gas industry. It is an awesome program for the up-and-coming STEM professionals.

 

 

Family Information:

I have been married to Kevin for about 20 years. We lived most of our married life in Altus, Oklahoma; we moved to Weatherford 7 years ago.  We have 2 children. Josh is a Freshman at OU and Sarah is a Sophomore at Weatherford High School. We have one dog named Marki.

Personal Information:

I enjoy spending time with my family.  I really like chasing my kids all over the state and beyond as they play baseball, basketball, softball, soccer, and football.  When I can make the time, I like to escape it all with a good book.
