I graduated from Enid High School.
I received a bachelor’s degree from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Business Education.
My first love was always elementary students. So, I attended the University of Central Oklahoma to receive my elementary certificate.
Bachelor’s Degree in Business Education
Certificate in Elementary Education
I began teaching in Marlow Elementary School in 2016. I taught Kindergarten for 2 years and second grade 1 year. Currently I am teaching second grade for a second year.
I began teaching third grade in Moore, Ok. After four years, in Moore, my husband and I moved to El Reno. We began a family, so I stayed home for several years to care for my girls. I did teach fifth grade for one year in El Reno. We moved to Bray where I taught first and second grade for 21 years.
I have been married for 45 years to Kevin McKinley.
We have 3 girls who are all married and have children of their own. They are Melody and Mike Hansen, Megan and Rob Raines, and Melissa and Landon Sams. They have given us all together 8 wonderful grandchildren. Three of my grandchildren go to Marlow Elementary. Chailey Raines is in first grade and her brother, Raef, is in Pre-K, and Kaden Raines is a junior in high school.
I love to plant flowers and care for them. Sewing is also something I like to do when I have time.
When I am not teaching, my first love is spending time with my family! I love playing with my grandchildren and watching them bloom right before my eyes!!!
