“My full-time teaching career began in 1980, immediately after I graduated from college. Currently, I have the pleasure of teaching elementary students who benefit from special services at Oklahoma Connections Academy. I thoroughly enjoy the team approach that respects the individual needs of the students and their families in their pursuit of a quality education.
The flexibility of the online education experience allows families the opportunity to take advantage of managing their schedules to meet their personal priorities. I always intended to be a teacher because I believe that all students can learn, I enjoy helping students learn, and I myself enjoy learning. My time at Oklahoma Connections Academy has been a learning experience. I sincerely hope that I have been able to help families help their students learn, as well.”
