I started teaching in Marlow Public Schools in 2015-16. I was hired for First Grade. I have been in this district since 2015-16.
Before teaching in Marlow, I taught in Lawton Public Schools. I taught in that district for 12 years and was a teacher’s assistant in 2nd grade for 1 year. During my time 12 years of teaching in Lawton, I taught First Grade for 5 years and was a Title I Reading Specialist for the rest. I loved being a Reading Specialist! I love Reading and am very passionate about it therefore being a Reading Specialist was perfect for me. It allowed me to do Reading all day long.
My name is Jill Barron. I will be 46 years old in September 2020. I live in Duncan with my husband Paul, our son Alex, and our cat Chase. My family and I have lived in Duncan for 12 years. Before moving to Duncan, we lived in Lawton, where we lived for 6 years. I have been married to Paul for 18 years. We got married on a beach in the Bahamas. This was our 2nd attempt to get married there because the 1st attempt was cancelled due to the fact that our flight down to the Bahamas was on September 11, 2001 (& yes, we were on a plane in the air at the exact time that the towers were hit. That was scary! Yikes!) . Our son Alex is 5½ years old and is a Kindergartner. I can’t believe I have a Kindergartner already! How is that possible already?! Time is going too fast! I love having him in the same school as me though. Alex is the light in my life. He is by far the best thing in my life. He makes me smile and laugh all the time. He melts my heart when he smiles at me. He is a momma’s boy and loves to snuggle, which I absolutely love. I call him “my little peanut" all the time. Our son Alex likes school. Alex and I love going to the mountains, flying on airplanes, and playing in the snow. I love his excitement about everything! As a family, we enjoy taking walks, watching movies, going on road trips, going out to eat, and swimming. I also love to do word finds and read. I read whenever I can. I treasure anything and everything I do with my Alex.
My hobbies include playing with our son Alex (my most favorite thing to do!), taking walks, watching movies, reading, arts & crafts, traveling, word searches, and crossword puzzles. When I am not teaching, I enjoy my hobbies whenever I can. I also enjoy time with my family. Family is everything to me! My most favorite thing to do though is to play with Alex. He makes me smile and laugh all the time. He is so much fun to be around. My son is the light of my life. :)
