OU Alumnus is Norman Public School District’s Rookie Teacher of the Year

An alumnus from the University of Oklahoma has been honored at the annual Norman Public School District Celebration of Excellence. Tyler Overton is the district’s Rookie Teacher of the Year for 2019.

Overton is a traveling music teacher who graduated from OU in the spring of 2018.
He teaches at four different locations every day and says his main goal is to teach his pre-k students that music is fun.

Adams Elementary Principal Patty Thomason says they’re grateful to have Overton as part of their staff.

“I think it just is a culmination of everything that he’s about. He’s that first year teacher who came in and took initiative to a position that is a fairly new creation by the district.”
