I'm Jeanette Middleton. I LOVE being in a classroom of students.

I grew up in Oklahoma and graduated from Okla. State University with a BS in Engineering Technology.  As I chose to be a stay-at-home mom for a few years with my own children I started teaching part-time just for something else to do and now I can't stay out of the classroom!

I am married and have three children.  During the summer I spend time usually outdoors with family and at various church camps.  During the school year you can find me following my own kids with the Ozark band, golf, football, and youth activities and of course... DOING MATH and TEACHING in the classroom!

My name is Justin Peery. I'm new to Finley but not new to teaching. In my 20 years I have taught every level of English class. I coach many things, as well. The most important thing I want to instill in students, both inside and outside of the classroom, is confidence. Creating a challenging environment where students can accomplish difficult tasks and take pride in their accomplishments can get complicated. I have helped raise four children with my wife, Shayna, and watching their growth through successes and failures has given my life purpose and joy.

I’m thrilled to be at Finley River! I believe strongly in our school and have seen student after student succeed in our environment.

Ozark is a school district I know and love, I graduated from OHS in 2003. After high school, I spent nearly 5 years as a missionary with OneHope International traveling to different countries and working with elementary and high school students. I’m passionate about success both personally and academically. Each and every student is capable of incredible things if given the opportunity and support!

I’m looking forward to a great school year!
