Plainview Teacher of the Year

    My mom, grandmother, aunt, several cousins, and sister were all teachers, so you might say it was destiny, in the genes, expected.  Actually, I think the day I knew I wanted to really become a teacher was the day I walked into Dr. Virginia Marsden’s children’s literature class.  She truly made childhood fairy tales, myths, legends, and tall tales come to life.  I love to read to my students and end with them saying, “No, keep reading.”  I hope to instill in my students each year not only a desire to read, but also life skills outside of the textbook, such as kindness for one another and working to be the best they can be.  My own children have been my biggest influence in wanting to be a caring educator who always has time to listen to each student’s whole story.  Learning about your students outside of the classroom can be invaluable in helping them grow.  I enjoy attending their extra-curricular activities:  watching them play ball, dance, sing in a choir, or perform in a play. It is rewarding to share in their passion and helps connect us long past the fourth grade classroom.  I have enjoyed following many of my students’ lifelong careers, wherever their path may take them – a few even becoming teachers themselves.

     I feel like I have had two teaching careers as I taught in Oklahoma for ten years before moving to Chicago for twenty-seven years where I volunteered at my children’s school, worked as a private tutor, and substitute taught.  Upon returning to Oklahoma, I taught one year at Marietta before coming to Plainview and teaching fourth grade for the past eight years.  It is a privilege to work with the students, faculty, and administration at Plainview.

2020 Graduation Available for Viewing On-Demand

April 1, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Here are more details regarding Plainview’s Continuous Learning Plan since students and teachers will be working remotely from home the rest of the school year.  School buildings will remain closed, but Plainview is committed to resuming your student’s learning beginning next Monday, April 6, 2020.  Our intent is to provide a positive academic experience for students without overwhelming parents and to engage all students.

Teachers and principals have been working diligently to develop a plan to implement distance learning by grade level and content area.  This plan does not replace direct classroom instruction but is meant to continue enrichment and learning during this very difficult time.

• Distance Learning begins April 6, 2020 and will conclude no later than May 22, 2020.  The exact last day of school has not yet been determined.

• Weekly lessons will be posted each Monday by 9:00 a.m.  Assignments will vary by grade level, and learning can happen any time of day.

• There will be no final exams for students in grades 6-12.  Students in AP classes will have an opportunity to take AP exams.  As of this release, the College Board has indicated AP exams will be taken at home and online.

• Teachers are encouraged to keep in weekly contact with their students/families. Each teacher will have one office hour daily. Teachers may contact students by email, REMIND, or other approved media once a week during their office hours. 

• Parents can email principals if they are not receiving assignments or learning activities. 

In spite of the many challenges in providing distance learning to all, we hope you will join us in embracing this new way of teaching and learning.  Please reach out to your student’s teacher or administrator if you have any questions.

Plainview Public School District Learning Plan

Plainview Elementary teachers (pre-kindergarten-grade 5) will provide a continuous learning plan for students.  Teachers will utilize Study Island, Reading Eggs, Math Seeds, Nearpod, and/or Seesaw to assign weekly lessons. Weekly lessons will include the following:  two assignments for ELA, two assignments for mathematics, and a choice board including eight to ten activities to select from for the week.  From the choice board activities provided, students are expected to complete one activity per day.  Science and social studies skills will be incorporated into the choice board activities.  An expectation for reading independently or aloud for twenty minutes daily and practicing mathematics basic facts for fifteen minutes a day will be communicated. Special area teachers including physical education, music, art, counseling, computer technology, and library will provide weekly challenges for the students.  A fillable template will be provided weekly to document lessons, reading/mathematics log, choice board activities, and weekly specials challenges. Teachers are expected to communicate weekly with students/families in order to maintain relationships and offer support.  Office hours will be available daily for families to contact teachers for questions and additional help.

Plainview secondary school students (grades 6-12) will continue the use of tablets for our distance learning program.  Fortunately, we have been a 1:1 school for many years and our teachers will continue using our various blended resources.  The Oklahoma State Department of Education’s framework will help guide our staff to provide a quality distance learning opportunity.  All secondary teachers will establish “office hours” for availability of direct daily contact with their students and parents. The middle school (grades 6-8) will continue to use EDMODO as our learning platform.  The students “joined” their various classrooms the second week of school and they have been provided assignments, a planner, a parent portal, and a virtual backpack on this learning management system.  The middle school students will be able to upload assignments, download completed work, collaborate with classmates, and ask their teachers questions using EDMODO.  They will also use Google Classroom, Study Island, Plato, and BrainPop as well as a multitude of web-based educational sites to enhance our distance learning platform.  Teachers at the middle school will utilize ZOOM to maintain direct contact (voice and image) with their students to foster collaboration and support.  Our students receive feedback directly from their teachers through WenGage, Zoom, and EDMODO.  Our core classes will concentrate on the state standards with original lessons directed to negate regression.  The lessons will provide students with options such as choice lists, direct lessons, weekly projects, and daily assignments.  Additionally, the high school (grades 9-12) will continue to use flipped classrooms.  The EDMODO learning management system will remain an important part of the high school distance learning model.  The high school coursework will focus heavily on core subjects with elective opportunities posted for each student.  


Beginning Monday, March 23rd we will have a drive through grab and go lunch available from 11:00a.m-1:00p.m. at the awning in front of the Intermediate Elementary.  This will be an extension of our child nutrition program and we hope to continue the program during the duration of the school closure.  If you would like more information or to request a lunch for your children, call (580) 223-6319.
