    This is my 30th year with DPS and I am so excited to be an Instructional Assistant again this year in Mrs. Fenlon’s Kindergarten Class. I love helping the students grow and learn so much during their first year of school!

    Because of my Nursing background, I particularly enjoy supporting students with various medical needs and being part of the Emergency Response team at Mangum.

    On a personal note, I have been married for 42 years to my college sweetheart, Michael. God has given us 2 wonderful children who are both married, and 4 adorable grandchildren! I spend all my free time with them. I enjoy the beach, kayaking, photography and reading. I am so thankful to be a part of this wonderful school!
