I was blessed to attend Bixby School from preschool through fifth grade, and have again been blessed to work here as an adult. After college, I spent seven years on the professional poker circuit. That was a stimulating adventure but didn’t provide the balance I ultimately realized was necessary for longterm happiness. I moved to Addis Adaba, Ethiopia for four months to volunteer at an elementary school. Upon returning from that life-altering sojourn in 2012, I began working at Bixby as an after-school teacher. Since, I’ve worked in a variety of positions at Bixby including short and long-term substitute, 4th & 5th grade writing, math club, electives, 5th grade play and summer camp. This remarkable school, along with its wonderful students and incredible faculty, fills me with perpetual nostalgia and contentment.
