Welcome to Union 8th Grade Center.  I am so excited to be working with such a diverse group of students from all over the globe who are so eager to learn!  ALL students can learn to express themselves by focusing on core areas of English which are Listening, Speaking, Reading/Vocabulary, and Writing, 

I graduated from The University of Tulsa in 1992 and have been a teacher, academic coordinator, director, and principal both in the states and overseas.  My 24-year Educational Career ranges from teaching TOEFL at the university level to high school, middle school, and elementary.  Overseas, in Jordan & Lebanon, I taught 7th & 8th grade English and Social Sciences while acting as Junior School Principal for Elementary at The Modern American School in Jordan.  I have taught for Tulsa Community College North Campus (ELL), Oral Roberts University English Institute, Tulsa English Institute (TU - off campus) as well as being the Director of a staff of 25 for The Language Company (ELS Multiple Branch English Institutes).  I have been with Union Public Schools for10 years. I teach 9th grade English for ELL in the summer for 8 weeks as a credit course.  Currently, I am teaching Newcomers English Language, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing.

I have a Double Major from University of Tulsa. A BA in English Literature and a BA in Elementary Education.  I am Amid-East Certified in TESL.  I have taught English as a Second Language for 24 years.  I speak Arabic (Lebanese dialect), and am well-versed in French and my Spanish is a work in progress.  And of course...I speak English! I LOVE LANGUAGES and the STUDENTS who speak them!!

I graduated from Jenks High School in 1985 and have 5 children (4 graduated, 1 still in school) and LOVE UNION PUBLIC SCHOOLS & am PROUD to be a part of such a SUPER SYSTEM of Education.  I am truly compassionate and treat my students as one big family.  Respect is important and my class.  Every child is important and valuable.  All children can learn!  Please contact me via e-mail if you have any questions.
