I've accumulated 270+ professional development hours in my three years of teaching.
I've been teaching middle school English Language Arts for six years. This will be my third year at Weatherford Middle School – and my third classroom as well! I have taught a combination of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English Language Arts/ 6th grade Reading over the past three years. This year, I am teaching 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts.
I started my teaching career at Hydro-Eakly, where I taught a combination of 6th grade, 7th grade, 8th grade, and 9th grade English/Reading and high school Journalism.
I married my handsome high school sweetheart in 2010. We have been happily married seven years and have two beautiful boys – Tyton, who is six and starting Kindergarten, and Tyger, who was born last spring. They are the absolute light of our lives. Tyton keeps us busy with wrestling, soccer, flag football, and tee-ball, and Tyger loves to talk and keep us on our toes, as well.
When I'm not teaching, or planning, or grading... You can find me spending time with my boys, running, watching OU football (or any football for that matter!), spending time with our families, attending the First United Methodist Church on Sunday mornings, fishing, and weekly visits with my grandparents.
