Our afterschool robotics program provides students with hands on learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Robotics gives students the opportunity to use their knowledge and imagination to dream big and create something new. With 3D modeling and computer-aided design, our students build drones, underwater robots, quad-flyers, and more.
AT Memorial Middle SCHOOL, STUDENTS CAN:
- Engage in self-paced, self-directed learning in 21st century classrooms;
- Work with their teachers and peers to develop content mastery in their learning programs; and
- Learn and grow in a forward-thinking school community that is using technology to transform teaching and learning.
I am given the chance to experience, play, and be immersed in a diverse learning environment. I was able to participate in the robotics club which gets me ready for my future. I know I want to do something in engineering, like building planes or designing something for the world to use. Here I get to design, model, build drones, and use a 3D printer. My experience at Memorial [Middle School] has prepared me for that future.Memorial Middle School alumnus

Memorial Middle School opened its doors in 2011, following a renaming and reconfiguration of Byrd and Nimitz Middle Schools under Project Schoolhouse. Memorial Middle School was named as a memorial to all Tulsa students and teachers who had fought in World War I and II and the Korean Conflict. The legacy of the veterans memorialized by the school's name reflects the admiration of the veterans by the community for their courage and sacrifice on behalf of the United States of America.
At Memorial Middle School, we use a blended learning model with a student-centered approach to instruction that uses online learning, giving students control over the pace and path they take toward their learning goals. In addition to more traditional tasks, small group activities, and individual tutoring. Through this program, called INCharge, students move at their own pace, using in-class supports, web-based videos, and digital articles, and teacher resources to develop their learning. Our students make great strides in their learning as we focus on how they learn best. Our students have access to tablets to use both during the school day and at home as they continue their learning outside of school time.

The Memorial Middle School community supports relationships that develop personal responsibility, respect, trust, and creating a safe learning environment. We engage students in developing leadership skills that promote college and career readiness and lifelong learning by using innovative technology and research-proven strategies.
My academic career with Tulsa Public Schools began at East Central High School in 2009 where I spent five years as an English teacher and Speech & Debate coach. I also served East Central High School as the English Department chair and as an Assistant Principal.
After serving for eight years at East Central High School I was offered the role of Interim Principal at Monroe Demonstration Academy for the 2019-2020 school year. I currently serve as interim principal of Memorial Middle School.
I attended Northeastern State University in Tahlequah where I received a master's degree in communication and a bachelor's degree in journalism/mass communications. I discovered my passion for education while working as a graduate assistant at Northeastern State University. While teaching freshman level courses, I learned that being part of a classroom setting was one of the most impactful roles I could have.
Education has become my passion; there is no better feeling in the world than to help ignite the spark in young minds that will drive their interests for years to come.
