5th Grade Teacher
In 2009, I graduated from a school in South Africa called The Wykeham Collegiate. I was then recruited as a swimmer to Oklahoma Baptist University. We were undefeated in the NAIA National Championships from 2011-2015. I graduated with a degree in Kinesiology. I moved to the University of Evansville (GO ACES!) in Indiana to pursue a masters degree in Public Service Administration.
2020 will be my first year teaching as a Weatherford Eagle! I will be teaching 5th Grade English Language Arts and reading.
I taught at Oklahoma City Public Schools as a 5th Grade English Language Arts and social studies teacher. In 2016-2018 I was an assistant swimming coach for a D1 school in Indiana. This is where I discovered my love for teaching.
I am from Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. I made my way to Oklahoma in 2011 as a recruited student athlete, and I have never looked back. You can always find me with a coffee mug in my hand, or close by. Yes, I miss having a Starbucks down the road (hint, hint!) I love to run, and if you see me running around in the city of Weatherford, go ahead and honk… I need the motivation! I love going to the lake in the summer, or on the weekends. I love anything salt and vinegar, as well as gummy sweets such as Fruit Snacks. I do have an accent, so please don’t be shy to ask about my homeland. I am here to educate! :)
