First Grade Teacher
I graduated from Fort Gibson High School in Fort Gibson, Oklahoma. I attended Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. I graduated from NSU with a Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood Education.
This will be my seventh year teaching First Grade at Grove Lower Elementary.
Prior to teaching in Grove, I taught 12 years at the Early Learning Center in Fort Gibson, Oklahoma. While there, I taught Developmental First Grade for two years, First Grade for three years, Pre-Kindergarten for 5 years, and Kindergarten for two years.
My husband’s name is Tim Heird. He is the owner and pharmacist of Express RX of Miami in Miami, Oklahoma. We have one daughter, named Zoee. She is a freshman at Grove High School. She is a competitive dancer and a varsity cheerleader. She and I are always on the go with her activities. I wouldn’t change that for the world. We have a blast!
We have 3 dogs...Jagger, a Yorkshire Terrier; Captain, a Boston Terrier; and Max, an American Bulldog. We also have a salt water aquarium full of fish, coral, anemones, and a shrimp and goby pair. My husband is always bringing home creatures, such as tarantulas and Mediterranean geckoes, from his trips.
I am truly blessed! I have an amazing family, I work with some of the best teachers in Oklahoma, and I have the best friends anyone could ever ask for. My cup runneth over!
