I have worked with children and in public schools for 41 years. I taught elementary school in Mid-Del PS, Norman PS, Watonga PS, Cleveland and Tulsa Union PS. I am committed to do everything I can do to help every child in OK to have an excellent public school education. I am also committed to the common good of the people of Oklahoma

Who I AM

I am a regular person.  
  • I am a retired teacher with 39 years of regular classroom experience and 2 more years        of reading tutoring and subbing
  • I am a wife of a retired government teacher/football coach.
  • I am a mother of two extraordinary daughters.  
    • The older lives in Austin who holds a PhD in Religious Studies and is an adjunct professor at a seminary and a visiting scholar at UT.  She is the founder and director of a non-proffit, the Institute for Diversity and Civic Life
      • She is married to a CTO of an online firm in Austin
      • She is  the mother of two of my precious grandchildren;  a fifth grade son and a second grade daughter
    • The younger lives in Owasso and is a reading specialist for Owasso Public Schools.
      • She is married to Owasso's 7th grade Center's vocal music teacher
      • She is the mother of my other two grandchildren who attend Owasso schools: a fourth grade son and a first grade son plus a three month old granddaughter.  
  • .
  • I am a CASA volunteer (Court Appointed Child Advocate), where I represent children        in court who have been removed from their homes by DHS.
  • I am a life long learner.  I earned two MEd degrees.   I belong to a book club.  I read as       much as I can.
  •  I CARE!   If I think that something is unfair, I look for ways to solve problems.   I can't       just sit and complain!

  • I am NOT a politician!   I am not looking to further a career, to gain power, to smooze,          to rise in the ranks, etc.  I am just a plain old person who is willing to step up when        injustices happen to people.   The past legislatures have heaped injustice on                      children, my legislator included.   
  • My issues are not political party issues, they are for all people who care about children.
  • I say ENOUGH!
  • I am running for HD 76.
  • I am qualified because I CARE!
