About the teacher:
This is my 8th year to teach at Mustang North, although I have been in the district for 15 years. I teach 7th Computer Applications and 8th Computer Applications, as well as a leadership class at MNMS called TAG. I am assistant coach for Softball and 7th and 8th grade Girls Basketball at North. Outside of school, I coach for the OK Swish organization. I am married and have 2 daughters and a son-in-law. I am a graduate of Oklahoma State University. I love sports and as I tell my kids in class, support three teams: Mustang Broncos, Oklahoma State Cowboys, and Oklahoma City Thunder.
About Distance Learning:
Wow! What a strange time we are living through! I hope you are staying home and safe from this terrible virus!
For Computer Applications we will have a weekly meeting via Google Hangout that I will post on Google Classroom once I have all of the information. (I've sent invitations, so please join if you have not!) I'll be giving you some resources to help you with your typing skills. We are still working on the specific plans so check back on that!
For TAG, Mrs. Horton and I will also be meeting with you weekly and will have a plan soon!
I miss you guys and look forward to seeing your faces soon!

They are challenged to stand out among their peers, to try new things, and to be an example to others in their school. They organize and lead school assemblies, promote positive school climate and school unity, and support clubs, athletics, and other school activities.
