"Where your talents and the needs of the world cross; there lies your vocation." -Aristotle
Growing up I explored the world around my through text (fiction and nonfiction), so it was a natural fit to study English and Creative Writing at Oklahoma Baptist University for my undergraduate degree. After graduation, I was still unsure where my talents and the needs of the world crossed, but in time it became clear that teaching was where my passion burned brightest. I then began my study of education at the University of Oklahoma as a graduate student and became certified to teach. I have taught in both the English Language Arts and Social Studies classroom here at Horizon.
This will be my seventh year at Horizon Intermediate. After spending the summer with my kids, Olivine and Linden, I am recharged and excited to see how my classes grow together throughout the year.
