John WaldronquoteI like teaching in an urban district because our cities are the places where diversity, the challenges of modern life and the possibilities of large-scale interaction come together. I like working for Tulsa Public Schools because it includes so many kinds of schools and learning environments. I hope I get to teach here for three more decades.

quoteBreAnnah EddyTulsa includes everything a person would want in a city. Downtown has that “big city” feel, but a fifteen-minute drive takes one into suburban and rural areas surrounded by intensely green natural beauty. The people of this city, however, are what have truly kept me here my whole life.
