Welcome to Spanish 1!
I'm so excited to teach Spanish 1 at the Owasso 8th Grade Center!
I was born in Ponca City, Oklahoma, and lived in Fairfax for the first nine months of my life. My family then moved to Tulsa where I lived for the next 17 years. Upon graduating from Union High School, I attended the University of Tulsa for my two Bachelor's degrees: Spanish and Speech Pathology. I later earned my Master's in Teaching English as a Second Language from Oklahoma State University.
I began my teaching career here in Owasso in 2004 at the Owasso 6th Grade Center. I taught there for 7 years, and then taught 4th grade Language Arts at Zarrow International School (Spanish Immersion) for 7 years. Now I'm back in Owasso!
I have three children that I adopted, and I got married last June. I like to go camping and hiking. I also love to travel! Spanish has opened so many wonderful doors for me, personally and professionally. My hope is that you will share a love of languages with me!
