Welcome to our school...I am thrilled to be working with your child!

I am a former Kindergarten and 4th grade teacher who began teaching at Guymon Public Schools in 2004.  I spent 6 years in Kindergarten and 2 years in 4th grade before making the transition to Principal.  This is my 6th year as an Elementary Principal but my first year at Academy Elementary.

I received my undergraduate degree from Oklahoma Panhandle State University and a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from West Texas A & M University.  I completed a second master's degree in Educational Leadership from East Central University.  I became a National Board Certified Teacher in 2010.

I am married with 3 children.  My daughter attends the University of Oklahoma, one son attends Oklahoma State University and my other son attends Guymon High School.  Outside of school, I love spending time with my family.  I am a huge sports fan and especially like cheering on the Sooners!
