I graduated from Central High School (Sallisaw) in 1981, then I attended Northeastern State Univerity and obtained my BA in English Education in 1995.
When I began teaching at Vian Public School, I taught 6th and 11th grade Language Arts. After two years of splitting time between middle school and high school, I began exclulsively teaching freshman English and senior English in the high school. I have been here for 13 years so far, and I love it!
My first teaching job was at Gans Public School where I taught 8th -12th grades and yearbook class. After three years at Gans, I taught high school language arts at Central High School for 5 years before coming to Vian.
I have been married to Keith Stewart for 30 years, and we have 6 chidlren. The oldest is 40 years old, and the youngest is twelve. (I know!) When our twelve year old son graduates, we will have had a child in Vian’s school system for 36 consective years!
I am a big Elvis Presley fan. I also pretty much love Toby Keith. I like to make quilts, and I have my own photography business where I specialize in senior pictures. I like Diet Pepsi. A LOT!
