Hi, I am Kristi Usher and I am the Kindergarten teacher at Tushka. I have been teaching for twelve years; I taught first grade for a few years before moving to Kindergarten. Before I came to Tushka, I was the third grade teacher at Farris for three years.
I grew up on a chicken and cattle farm in Shady Point, OK and attended school in Panama where I was involved in basketball, cheerleading, FFA and livestock showing.
Then I went to college at Eastern Oklahoma State College in Wilburton, and then on to Oklahoma State University in Stillwater where I graduated in December 1999. In April 2000 I married my husband, Kelly Usher. We have three children Millie 11, Tatem 8, and Newt 4.
I enjoy cooking, gardening and shopping and I am a member of Southside Baptist Church in Atoka.
