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 30 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 twelth year teaching at Indiahoma and I have twenty two years teaching experience in Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Germany and California. 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.
