The Oklahoma Hall of Fame…What an unexpected treasure! I am beyond blessed to have been a part of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame these past weeks. I am honored to have been able to spend this time with such amazing people in this incredible place. The staff here are the very picture of excellence and show a true love and a singular focus for their mission. The Hall of Fame is inspiring generations of Oklahomans to do more and be more. No matter how old we get, we should never stop learning and I have learned so much during my time here!
Being the Educator in Residence has been a joy for me and an experience I will never forget. I love seeing the awe on the faces of the children as they move from room to room. I love watching them point to portraits with big round eyes and ask, “Who is that?”. I am proud to be part of a place that puts education at the top of the list and goes above and beyond to connect Oklahoma’s students to the stories that have made our state what it is today! I hope that my small contribution serves the Hall of Fame and the schools in our state well. Benjamin Franklin said, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” I am privileged to have been part of the efforts to involve students in the past, present, and future of Oklahoma!
