I graduated from Southeastern Oklahoma State University in 1999 with a Bachelor's Degree in English Education. I worked for one year with Dogs Against Drugs, which is a drug dog program for public schools. My area consisted of about 14 schools in the southeastern part of Oklahoma. I began teaching in 2001 as the English I teacher here at Antlers High School. Over the years, I have taught all four English classes in the high school grades, as well as Humanities and other elective classes.
I have been married for 18 years to my best friend, who is a high school ag-teacher. We have two beautiful children, one boy and one girl and too many pets and critters to mention. We live on our 120 acre ranch where we raise show goats and cattle.
