I grew up and lived most of my life in Mid-Missouri. I moved here several years ago to be near my children who were now all living in Clarksville, TN. I received my degree through Central Methodist University in Missouri. I have been teaching for more than 20 years, most of which was in an Early Childhood Classroom within the Public School System. I am the mother of four children and the grandmother to three wonderful grandchildren, all of which live here in Clarksville. In my free time I love spending time with my family. I also like to read, enjoy crafting, and writing song lyrics.

Oakland uses a positive behavior matrix that promotes student awareness in expected behaviors.  This matrix can be seen in every room, throughout the building, is described in our school handbook located in the front of each student's provided OWL planner, and builds off our character trait acronym (WISDOM) banners handing from our foyer ceiling.  Each desired trait is broken down to identify school related desired behaviors to create student understanding and awareness of expectations.  These indicators are also linked to Class Dojo, which is used not only by teachers but throughout the entire building by special area teachers, special service providers, support staff, and administrators to provide consistency for our students and with parent communication.  The six overarching categories/character traits that student friendly indicators are broken down for on the visual matrix that students are taught about and expected to strive for are:

  • Work Ethic
  • Integrity
  • Self-discipline
  • Determination
  • Optimism
  • Motivation

Follow the link below to view the full "Dojo and Matrix Cheat Sheet".  This is designed to show the connection between the values on the matrix and the skills that are on Class Dojo.
