I went to school from Pre-K-12th grade in Edmond Public Schools, then went to OSU for my bachelors in Early Childhood Education. GO POKES! This is my sixth year teaching, prior to this year I taught first grade for two years and kindergarten for three years. This will be my first year at Russell Dougherty.
