I attended and graduated from Hilldale Schools in Muskogee.
After high school I attended and graduated from Northeastern State, Tahlequah.
I have been married 30 years to Larry Staton. We have one son, Ote.
Ote is attending the University of Alabama at Birmingham, studying neuroscience.
When I am not teaching I like to go visit my son, work on our ranch, fish, and
go to baseball games.
