In my opinion, small-town life is a separate culture in itself. Part of what I love about Rock Creek is the fact that I grew up in a town similar to Bokchito and went to a school similar in size to Rock Creek. Even though I don't live in this community, it feels like home, and I like that. Thank you for making me a part of your community.
Here’s a little about me:
I graduated from high school in 2001 and enrolled in Southeastern Oklahoma State University. I was accepted into the honors program there, and graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish Education. I became certified to teach Spanish that summer, and then added Speech, Drama, and Debate to my certificate a few years later. In 2008 I decided to pursue a Master of Education degree in School Counseling. I was accepted into Southeastern’s school counseling program and graduated in May of 2011. I added school counseling to my teaching certificate that summer. I taught Spanish and Speech until 2012 (and a few hours a day in 2013). I enjoyed teaching and learning from my students, but when the opportunity arose to become the school counselor for the district, I felt led to serve the students in a different capacity. I left my classroom, and moved into the counselor's office. Although the job covers a MULTITUDE of responsibilities, I absolutely LOVE coming to work every day. We have a great school with great staff and great students. My hope is that we can all work together--community members, parents, students, staff, administration, and Board of Education--to make Rock Creek the absolute best school it can be.
