Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Mandy Kilbourne and I teach 3rd grade at Sooner Elementary. I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a bachelors degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education and a masters degree in Educational Administration and Curriculum Supervision. I love working with kids! One of the best things about being a teacher is getting to see the kids make such enormous strides academically and socially over the course of the school year. It is my goal to make each student love learning and school as much as I do! I have a lot of great games and activities that I will be using to teach the skills and standards we will be covering this year. Please encourage you kiddos to teach you these games so that you can enjoy them at home as well!
When I'm not in my classroom I love to walk my dogs (Friday and Ro), spend time with Shawn (my husband), hike, travel, go to the lake, paddle board, workout, and run. I love to challenge myself and I've completed 4 full marathons and am planning on completing my 5th in April. I also enjoy being outside, cooking, and cheering on the Sooners during football season. BOOMER!!!
