I’m called….....Mrs. Bergner, Janet, Mom, mother-in-law, an OSU fan and a MEME!!!!
I grew up in Watonga, Oklahoma. I started my education career in Kindergarten as a Watonga Eagle. I was very fortunate to be able to complete my education in one school. I graduated from high school in 1987.
In the fall of 1987 I attended Central State Univerisity, which is now the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond. I completed two years at CSU and then the love bug bit me. I became engaged (and later married) to Terry Bergner. The distance between Weatherford and Edmond was just to long so I transfered to Southwestern Oklahoma State University.
After completing my elementary education degree at SWOSU, I went on to complete my Master's degree in Reading Specialist. I also have my Early Childhood certification.
Things I have done since college: been a substitute teacher, taught first grade, owned my own pre-school, worked as an elementary career counselor for a School-to-Work grant, become a mom 3 times, taught 2nd grade for 16 years, and now I am a Meme. I just completed my first year as a Kindergarten teacher.
I have been married to Terry for 33 years. He is the Division Vice President at Bar-S Foods in Lawton, OK. We have 3 sons. Wakley is a 2013 Marlow graduate. He is the 7th grade Physical Science teacher and the Offensive Coordinator football coach at Pauls Valley. Wakley is married to Madison and they have the sweetest little boy named, Raiden. Wyatt is a 2018 Marlow graduate. He is married to Erin. Wyatt is working at his doctorate of Physical Therapy at Langston University. Will is a 2022 Marlow graduate. He is attending Northeastern Oklahoma State University.
During the summer I stay busy volunteering at Duncan Regional Hospital 2 days a week. I volunteer at the front desk of the hospital and at the cancer center.
I am now in my 18th year as a Marlow Outlaw.
