Who I Am
Ms. Oke

I've been at Stanfield for nine years! I love to read and anything technology. What better job than to be a library teacher?? 

I went to college at East Carolina University, then I went to University of South Carolina to get my masters in Library and Information Science.  I used to work as a Reference Librarian in Colorado at Mesa State University. Then I moved back home and worked in Gaston County. Finally, I started teaching here at Stanfield. 

I have one daughter, Gracie, and two crazy cats, Gabe & Rosie.  We all live in Oakboro. 



What is Ms. Oke teaching this unit?

 Kindergarten We are learning about the parts of a book.
The covers, spine, title, author and title page.
First Grade    We are learning about why writers write. We learned the three author's purposes: To entertain you, To teach you, To change your mind.
Tedd Arnold is our author of inspiration. He wrote the Fly Guy series. He's such a funny and good writer!  
 Second GradeWe are learning about the Super 3. We learned that learning good strategies for research is just using a good recipe for cookies! We learned about taking notes means writing down what you've learned so you won't forget. For note taking, we learned about making bubble maps.  
Third Grade We are learning that the internet is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you are going to get!  We are learning about ncwiseowl.org.
Fourth Grade We are learning about research skills. We are learning that the internet is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you are going to get!  We are learning about SafeSearch.
 Fifth GradeWe are learning how to determine if information online is good or bad quality. We are raising awareness on "fake news."
