· Heather Wustenfeld teaches first grade at John K. Hubbard Elementary. She’s been a teacher for six years and has also taught second and third grades. She received her Bachelor of Science in elementary education from the University of Oklahoma. She’s married to Anthony Wustenfeld and the couple has two children, Cooper and Cash.
Formerly, Wustenfeld said she was the associate children’s pastor for two years at Journey Church, where several church families from Noble said “amazing things” about Noble, so when a teaching position came open, she applied.
“It’s a larger school district with a small-town feel,” Wustenfeld said. “It has very nice people.”
Of being named Hubbard Teacher of the Year, Wustenfeld said, “I just thought it was an incredible experience and that my teachers would nominate me, it was a humbling moment.”
· Amanda Wilson, a fifth-grade teacher, has been teaching for seven years at Pioneer Intermediate School, where she also has taught fourth grade. Wilson graduated from Noble High School in 2001 and attended East Central University in Ada, where she graduated with a degree in elementary education.
Wilson said she’s currently attending the University of Oklahoma to obtain her mathematics specialist certification. She lives in Noble with her husband, Zack Wilson, and two children, Garrett and Claire.
“It’s such an honor to be named teacher of the year at a school that I attended myself,” Wilson said. “To teach alongside teachers that influenced me to become the teacher that I am today is a true blessing. I hope to inspire my students in the same way.”
