Sports Teacher: Preschool-5th Grade; Gardening Coordinator

Bixby School since 2006

I enjoy wearing many hats here at Bixby, I have taught various classes from Preschool Swim to Etiquette. My lifelong love of gardening began on my grandparent’s farm and continued with my Peace Corps experience in West Africa where I worked with a women’s gardening co-op. I enjoy teaching Sports and hope to help every student learn to enjoy many types of physical activities. Sportsmanship and teamwork are important life skills easily instilled through Sports classes.

I have personally learned much about myself competing in triathlons from Sprint to Ironman distances and from age-group through Elite divisions. Although I have retired from racing, I still enjoy swimming with Master’s, biking, running and Pilates. It’s a joy to watch my daughter using her Bixby education to thrive in collegiate athletics and academics!
