I went to Plainview Schools all of my life up until the middle of my Junior year of high school then I attended Heritage Christian School, graduating from there in 1994. I went on to play basketball at Murray State College for two years, then I took a break from school for several years. I finished up my associates degree from Murray and followed up with my bachelors degree at East Central University in 2010.
I hold an Associate of Science in General Studies from Murray State College in Tishomingo, Ok. I also hold a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education/Health/Safety degree from East Central University in Ada, Ok. I currently only lack a year to finish up a second bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. I am also certified to teach Family & Consumer Sciences.
I attended the Oklahoma Summit Conference every year for the last 8 years. The FCCLA Districts and State Conventions for the last 8 years.
This is my first year teaching at Thackerville and I will be teaching 3rd grade.
I began teaching in 2014 at Turner Public Schools teaching 8-12th grade Family & Consumer Sciences. I was also the Hot Shots & Little Dribblers Coach as well as the FCCLA Advisor. I taught there for four years then I moved to Lone Grove Public Schools where I taught 9-12th grade Family & Consumer Sciences and was the FCCLA Advisor for 3 years there. Finally, I taught at Plainview Public Schools last year teaching 8-12th grade Family & Consumer Sciences as well as the FCCLA Advisor. Prior to teaching, I was the youth leader, childrens church leader as well as taught Sunday School in the church I attended growing up. I have coached YMCA competitive baseball, basketball as well as assisted with football. I also coached the Hot Shots team at Lone Grove Intermediate as well as the Hot Shots and Little Dribblers teams at Turner Elementary. I previously worked at Cities in Schools as well as the Department of Human Services, Child Welfare Division. I have always loved being around kids and wanting to help mold them to become the best version of themselves as well as productive members of society.
I am a single Mom to my 18 year old son, Brayton Hamilton. He is a Senior this year at Plainview High School. He plays baseball for the Varsity team there as well as a member of the Plainview FCCLA chapter. He also umps at the YMCA in Ardmore during the summer. He loves playing baseball, working out, hanging out with his friends and going to the lake.
I am very family oriented and love hanging out with my family playing any type of games from board games to cornhole to wiffle ball. I love to laugh and make those around me laugh. My favorite thing to do is watch my son play baseball and hanging out at the lake with him during the summertime. We love to take out the boat to wakeboard, ski and tube. We also go to the movies at least once or twice a month. Most all of my free time revolves around my son and whatever he has going on at that moment. I also love sports. I played high school fast pitch softball, basketball, volleyball, and ran track at Plainview & Heritage Christian Schools. I also played college basketball at Murray State College.
