I have been teaching at Oxford High School since 2009. I am a collaborative teacher in the math department. I also teach math strategies. I love working at OHS, and my students are a joy to work with!

I am married to Clark Jinks who teaches 7th grades Civics and Geography at Drew Middle School in Lincoln. He coaches 7th and 8th grade boys basketball. We have one son; Jace, who was born on January 4th, 2013, and a daughter; Avery, who was born on February 27th, 2015. 

I looking forward to working with you this year!
