I am a proud graduate of the Class of 1982 at Porter High School. I completed my Associates Degree in Accounting from Connors State College in December, 1983. I graduated from Oklahoma State University in May, 1986 with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Education.
I began teaching computers at Porter High School in 1990-91. This year will begin my 27th year as an educator at Porter High School! I am looking forward to teaching Math Ready, Algebra II, Financial Algebra and 8th Grade Pre-Algebra this school year.
I have been married to Alan Parnell since December 18, 1982. We have one daughter, Jenna, who is a 2007 graduate of Porter High School and a 2011 graduate of Oklahoma State University. Jenna married Warren Dupree on November 13, 2011. We have a granddaughter, Farrah Lynn Dupree, born on March 7, 2014.
I believe a strong foundation in math is necessary for any individual. Every job or career needs people who can solve problems, think logically, balance their checkbook, and be able to make decisions based on data that is presented! All of those ideas are taught in mathematics!
