Current Position:

 

This is my third time teaching at Jay (I’m always determined to come back home).  This time around I have been teaching at JMS since August 2002.

I will be teaching your child Computer Keyboarding and Computer Literacy.  Some years I teach Journalism and sometimes I teach Personal Financial Literacy.  Occasionally I get to teach or oversee another subject such as Edgenuity Spanish or Khan Academy Pre-Algebra.  It doesn't matter---I love teaching new things as much as I love being a student and learning new things; so I'm even excited when I get to learn anything new along with my students.

Previous Position:

  • May 1989 - January 1990   American-International Charolais Association
  • August 1993 - July 1994:   Jay Middle School
  • August 1995 - May 1996:   Downtown Tulsa First Baptist Church Pre-School
  • August 1996 - July 1999:   Jay Middle School
  • August 2001 - July 2002:   Grove High School
  • August 2002 -    Present:   Jay Middle School

Family Information:

I now have my last child enrolled in our school:  Cadince is my 15 year-old Jay High School Freshman – she is the last of my four children to attend JPS.  My sons Cal (Bulldog Class of 2014) and Case (Bulldog Class of 2016)  are college students at my alma mater - NSU.  My oldest daughter Camrine  works full time as the City Clerk of the City of Jay.  And very important-she is the mother of my grand daughter, Rhymee Grace, who is Amazing and is a 4th Grade Bulldog; Michael Cru, and our new baby Aubrey Lynn – who are both future Bulldogs! I have grands that don’t live in Jay:  Avery Reece who lives in Owasso, and Asiya Renee & Noah Wade who live in California.

My children also have a step brother in Jay Schools and playing Bulldog sports now too.  Cole Oswalt is in 11th grade at oJHSl; and Carter Oswalt is a graduate of Jay High School Class of 2016 with Case, and is now a Junior at the University of Arkansas.

I have been dating the love of my life for over 7 years now - Michael Lemon. Through him I have two more children that I already love like my own - Andrew Lemon and Brooklyn Lemon, both graduates of Bixby High School.  Brooklyn is starting her Sophomore year at TCC.  Along with them, we now have a huge extended family!

Our pet family includes the only good cat in the world-Salem and our English Bulldog ZuZu; our farm/guard dog Chief, and numerous farm/show animals.

I LOVE spending time with my kids!  That's what God put me here for!

If I'm not at school, I am usually at a school function or sporting event watching my own kids or my school kids...rooting for the Bulldogs!!!

 

 

Personal Information:

 

If I am actually completely away from school, my hobbies are still doing anything with my kids, friends, and family or other kids.  I spend most of that time camping somewhere.  We also love to gig, float, swim; pretty much anything that is near or on a creek, lake, or even a pool-and ideally on a beach somewhere (which doesn't happen near often enough)!  As a family we are also big movies watchers; we go the theaters and rent at home.  My only other hobby is that I LOVE To Read!--I try to instill that interest in my students by discussing and sharing books with them, and gearing projects around reading.
