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 am 45 years old. I live in Duncan. My family and I have lived in Duncan for 11 years. Before moving to Duncan, we lived in Lawton. We lived in Lawton for 6 years. I have been married to Paul for 17 years. We got married on a beach in the Bahamas. We have 1 child, a son named Alex, and a cat names Chase. Alex is 4 ½ years old. He started Pre-K at Marlow this year. I love having him in the same school as me. 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 loves to snuggle, which I absolutely love. I call him “my little peanut" all the time. Our son Alex is able to say his letters and numbers.He is good at counting and enjoys learning new things. He loves singing nursery rhymes and the ABC song. He also loves books, coloring, painitng, playdoh, playing outside, playing in his sandbox, going to the park, swimming, and playing with his toys, especially Hot Wheels cars. Alex loves 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.
My hobbies include playing with our son Alex (this is 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 when I can. I also enjoy time with my family. Family is everything to me! My 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.
