• Hello!  I am Jennifer Fillmore (formerly Ms. Beard), and I am excited to be a Westmoore Jaguar!  This is my tenth year teaching at Westmoore High School.  I have been working in the field of education for twenty years.  In addition to teaching English II & III at Westmoore, I also teach English Comp I & II at Oklahoma City Community College (evenings & online).   I have a bachelor's degree in secondary education from Oklahoma State University and a Master of Arts degree in English from the University of Central Oklahoma.  I am originally from Stillwater, Oklahoma, but I have lived in or near Oklahoma City since 2001.  My husband, son, and I currently reside in Choctaw.  My son's name is Jay; he is my best friend and an eighth grader in Moore Public Schools this year.  And I have three crazy dogs--Penny, Gatsby, and Skylar--my "fur babies."  Sadly, we had to say goodbye to our 10-year-old boxer, Max, in November of 2019.  Penny is an English bulldog/boxer mix, Gatsby is a German shepherd/blue heeler mix, and Skylar is a full-blood Great Dane.
    One unique fact about me is that I compete in pageants.  After seven years of competing in state-level pageants, I ultimately broke my "1st Runner-Up Streak," and I was FINALLY awarded the title of Mrs. Oklahoma International 2018!  My dream of competing at an international-level pageant was fulfilled in July 2018 when I had the privilege of representing the great state of Oklahoma at the 2018 Mrs. International Pageant in Charleston, West Virginia, during the week of July 16-21, 2018.  I thought I was done competing after achieving my goal... however, I felt called to keep going, so I competed on March 24, 2019, for the title of MRS. OKLAHOMA UNITED STATES 2019, and I WON!  I represented Oklahoma at the 2019 Mrs. United States Pageant in Las Vegas, August 1-4, 2019, and I had the time of my life!  I then served as Mrs. Oklahoma County America for the greater part of 2020.  For my final state title, I was selected as MRS. OKLAHOMA EARTH 2020-2021, and I represented our state at the 2021 Mrs. USA Earth Pageant, January 14-17, 2021, in Orlando, Florida.  I placed in the Top 8, which means I exceeded my goal!  In my first two national pageants, I had not  moved past the preliminary round, but in my final national pageant, I not only advanced to the Top 12 but also the Top 8.  It was very exciting!  Just when I thought i was done... once again, I was reeled back in!  I will be returning to the MRS. USA EARTH stage in January 2022, once again represening our great state of Oklahoma.
    I am so very happy and grateful to be working with the outstanding faculty, staff, and students who comprise the "Jaguar Pride" that makes Westmoore High School #1.  GO JAGS!
