Why I Became an Educator

I wanted to help struggling students. I originally thought I would teach for couple of years and then complete my counseling degree, but I realized that teaching allowed me daily opportunities to make a difference in the lives of my students!

The Online School Experience at Oklahoma Connections Academy

Oklahoma Connections Academy's community is a very diverse group of families and teachers! We have people from many different walks of life, all looking for a style of education that fits them. Families, teachers, and staff are very welcoming and want to help all students succeed.

Message for Families Considering Online School

If you’re looking for the opportunity to truly be a part of your child's education, to be part of an awesome team of teachers and administrators who are ready and willing to help this be a great educational experience for your family, then Oklahoma Connections Academy is the place for you!

Students at Oklahoma Connections Academy learn to be independent workers and self-advocates.

My Interests

I am married to Mr. James, a Middle School Social Studies teacher with Oklahoma Connections Academy. We have two children, and I enjoy spending time watching them play soccer and tennis. We also have three dogs and a cat. I love to read, listen to worship music, and travel. I love seeing any new place; in Oklahoma, the US, or another country. I have traveled to many states, Asia, Africa, Europe and most recently Costa Rica.
