5th Grade - Mrs. Wallis

Hello! My name is Darbi Wallis (James) and this is my first year teaching 5th grade at Hugh Bish Elementary and I’m loving it! I was born and raised in Stillwater, OK where I attended Oklahoma State University. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a Principal Certification, and have completed the coursework for my PhD. In 2003, I became Nationally Board Certified. I’ve spent the last 22 years teaching 1st-8th grades in the public school system and as an English professor at both Northern Oklahoma College and Oklahoma State University. I have three children, Alexandra (21), Lincoln (17), and Tatum (15), and a grandson, Jett (2) who are my greatest blessings. I look forward to a wonderful year here at Hugh Bish!
