Degrees and Certifications:
This school year will be my 19th year teaching. I received my bachelors degree from UCO in December of 1999. I taught First Grade for two years and Kindergarten for 12 years all at Sooner Elementary. In Spring of 2006, I completed my Masters in Instructional Media from UCO as well. I continued teaching Kindergarten waiting for the Media Specialist postion to open at Sooner, my heart belongs here. I love our students, faculty and staff! This will be my fifth year as the media specialist.
Many of the students knew me as Ms. Chancellor. I got married in July of 2013 to a wonderful man, Kevin. He is a counselor for Norman Public Schools.
A wonderful thing happened to Kevin and I in February 2018, we had a little boy. His name is Oliver Knox. We are so in love and enjoying every moment!
A few more fun things:
Favorite Color: Pink
Favorite Book: Charlotte's Web, The Giver, Rain Reign, The War that Saved My Life (love so many hard to choose just one :) )
Favorite Movie: My Fair Lady, Back to the Future, Lion (I'm a big movie buff, hard to pick one on this one too)
Something you might not know about me: I play the piano (took lessons for 10 years)
Favorite Place to Travel: New York City, San Francisco or Maine
From start to finish of the school year, as your students visit the media center, it is my goal for them to love reading and the library. I want them to enjoy exploring their library and discover new adventures each time they get a new book. I will always be available for any help students need to reach this goal.
