Mrs. Lindsey- Bio

Welcome to 5th and 6th grade S.T.E.M. and 5th/6th Grade G.A.T.E.   I have been teaching in the Mustang School District the past 13 years.  This will be my 6th year to teach S.T.E.M. and my first year to do G.A.T.E.   I have been married to my wonderful husband for 16 years.  We have been blessed with two children Faith (age 11) and Luke (age 9). Some of my other interests outside of teaching are I love coaching volleyball and I have been doing that the past 16 years, I am a huge Thunder basketball fan, and I love to take vacations!! I am looking forward to spending time and getting to know each of your children this school year.
