My name is Kim Wyrick I have lived in Atoka County all my life. I attended school at Atoka from K-12 and graduated in 1989. That fall I began college at Southeastern Oklahoma State University and graduated in December of 1993 with a Bachelor of Science degree. My major was Elementary Education (1st-8th) accompanied by an endorsement in Early Childhood Education (PK-3rd) which is what I am qualified to teach.
I married Clay Wyrick in 1993, who was a Stringtown graduate. We have two children, Heather and Jared. I worked for Caney Elementary for 2 ½ years then became a homemaker, staying home with our two kids for 7 years. When my son went to Kindergarten, I began teaching 2nd grade at Stringtown Elementary, which is where I still am and so thankful to be a part of this school. In 2006, I returned to college this time East Central University to pursue a Master’s Degree which I received in 2008 for Reading (K-12). Both of my children graduated from Stringtown and were 8th grade and 12th grade co-valedictorians.
As a teacher I am fortunate to be part of a small rural school in Oklahoma. I now teach Kindergarten with my Scooby-Doo themed classroom. I am grateful to work here and to teach your child. There are no 2 classes ever alike and every year brings new challenges. At the end of the year, we will have a Kindergarten Graduation followed by a small reception. I love to see all my students, in cap and gown, receive their little diplomas.
And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this? Esther 4:14 I’m not going to save the Jewish people as Queen Esther did in Old Testament of the Bible, but I have the opportunity to touch children’s lives.
