Thanks for visiting my page! It is my great privilege to be teaching at Stratford for my seventh year! I’m so blessed to be in a profession I love! I did not start teaching right out of college, because I wasn’t sure it was what I wanted to do. However, after getting the opportunity to teach music at an arts academy for the Chickasaw Nation, I discovered it is what I am designed for. After that summer, I began ardently searching for a teaching job in the area. Luckily only one year later, I was hired to teach at Stratford. I love this place and the people that I get to be around every day. I’m so grateful for an amazing bunch of students from all levels at Stratford to make my first teaching job the best! I am an alumna of East Central University with two Bachelor’s degrees in Music Performance and Theatre and a Masters of Education with a specialty in Music.
My little family, Coach Caton and I, welcomed our second baby last December, Ellisyn Lynn! Her older sister Maddie is in third grade at Stratford this year! We are proud to be Bulldogs!
