When I am not teaching in the classroom my family and I stay busy with youth sports. I coach my son Cooper’s YMCA basketball team and my daughter Mackenzie’s Soccer team. Cooper is also on a local traveling baseball team. When the kids are not playing sports we like to attend OU football games in Norman. We love cheering on the Sooners. We also enjoy spending time outside on the trails in NW Arkansas.
