Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Nelson Mandela

Hey. This is my first year teaching at OKES. I have been teaching since 2012. I obtained my undergraduate degree from LaGrange College in Early Childhood Education, and I got my master's degree in Education focusing on reading and mathematics from Walden University. I taught for 4 years overseas, 3 years in Ecuador and 1 year in South Korea. I taught 2 years in LaGrange before coming here to OKES. I am originally from Georgia, and I am a bulldog fan, so I bleed red and black. I am engaged, and we will be getting married in March of 2019. The thing that makes me love teaching is seeing and knowing how education can truly change lives and provide a bright future. I always tell kids that they may not be able to control a lot of what goes on in their lives as a child, but they can control what they learn and their behavior. I believe strongly in my students, and they receive everything I can give them each day. I look forward to a great year at OKES.
