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 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.
