Favorite Quotes - “Students do not care how much I know until they know how much they care.”- John C. Maxwell and “I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn’t be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage.” - Roald Dahl

Mrs. Pruitt graduated from Meeker High School in 1991 and she received her elementary education degree from Oklahoma Baptist University in May 1995.   She has been in education for the past 27 years.  She has spent the last 7 years at Meeker Public Schools.  She has a passion for reading and for sharing that passion with her students.  Mrs. Pruitt enjoys teaching students and encouraging them to be the best they can be.  One of her favorite roles at the middle school is her role as Student Council Advisor for the Middle School Students.  It is such a joy to watch the students develop into amazing leaders and to achieve great things in their lives.

“She believes that teaching is one of the most rewarding and challenging professions.”
She does not view teaching as a job, but as a lifelong commitment to making a difference in the lives of children. Great teachers teach from the heart!
