I am originally from Chelsea, Oklahoma and graduated from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. I have been happily married to Scott Patton for the past 29 years and we have two lovely daughters Brooke, a 2010 Indiahoma graduate and Danielle a 2016 Indiahoma graduate who is currently attending the University of Oklahoma. BOOMER!. This will be my eleventh year teaching at Indiahoma and I have twenty one years teaching experience in Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Germany and California. I also serve as the Director for the First Baptist Church MonDay Camp. We live on our ranch between Indiahoma and Cache where we raise Longhorn Cattle, Boer Goats, Lamas, and Great Pyrenees Dogs. I am a Christian and a proud member of Indiahoma Baptist Church and the Cherokee Nation. I absolutely love teaching young children and making a difference in their lives.
