    ABOUT ME

     

    Hello and welcomeAfter earning my bachelor's and master's degrees in History from the University of Oklahoma, I returned to my alma mater nineteen years ago to teach social studies. I have taught Oklahoma History, Pre-AP Oklahoma History, US History, World History, Advanced Placement European History, 20th Century World History, and Advanced Placement World History while at WHS. In addition to my annual Advanced Placement training and exam reading, I focus much of my professional development in the areas of Holocaust and Genocide Studies and International Conflict Resolution. I have attended the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's Arthur and Rochelle Belfer National Conference for Educators I, II, and Next Step programs, Yad Vashem's International Conference on Holocaust Education and Echoes and Reflections workshops as well as participating in Facing History and Ourselves' Holocaust and Human Behavior, Crimes Against Humanity, Fundamentals of Freedom, and Be The Change programs. I also serve as an advisor for the Oklahoma Association of Student Councils (OASC) leadership workshop, BASIC, held each summer. In the fall of 2017, I started a Ed.D. program in Educational Administration, Curriculum, and Supervision at the University of Oklahoma. 

     
    I am proud to be entering my fifth year as a senior class sponsor. I am a founding member of the Westmoore High School Alumni Association and serve on its Board of Directors as well as on the Moore War Run Executive Committee. I manage Westmoore's social media accounts on Facebook (@WestmooreHS), Twitter (@WestmooreHS), and Instagram (@westmoore_hs). I serve as one of the Moore Love philathropy project sponsors for Westmoore High. I also am a member of the board of the Oklahoma Council for History Education. I received my National Board Certification in 2007 and renewed that certification in 2017.  Westmoore is a great place to be and I hope to share that experience with you!
