I have been married for 20 years to my husband Casey. He teaches US History and AP US History. He also is the head HS baseball coach . He loves everything OSU especially their athletics. We have a son named Tyler. He is 22 years old. He is funny, clever, witty, and nice. He was one of the valedictorians of GHS, class of 2015. Tyler is now a senior at Oklahoma State University. He is a CM (aka RA) and having a great time with that in Wentz Hall. He is majoring in computer science. He loves playing Dungeons and Dragons with his friends. He enjoys playing his trumpet and his guitar and having jam sessions with his buddies. He is also a marathon runner. Now for my other child as I like to call her. Marti is our dog. She is 10 years old. She is amazing. She is half pit bull and half rottweiler. Her nickname is BabyQueen. She is such a baby and well she thinks she is queen of the house. She has just brightened our lives so much. She is loving, soft, fun, and has a take charge attitude. As for myself, I was born and raised in Guthrie. I graduated from GHS in 1995. This is my 12th year teaching. In that 12 years I have been in two districts , five buildings, and have taught eight different grade levels. I love watching T.V. ,seeing Tyler, watching movies, playing with my dog, playing Candy Crush (currently in the level 1100's), and occasionally tagging along to a sporting event with my husband.
