Dr. Keri Bostwick is a proud graduate of Wesleyan Christian School (where she attended Kindergarten) and Forsyth High School. She attended Bartlesville Wesleyan College, receiving her B.A. in Secondary English Education in 1998, Oklahoma Wesleyan University, receiving her M.Ed. in 2013, and Concordia University-Portland, receiving her Ed.D. in Transformational Leadership in 2020. Her dissertation examined culturally relevant pedagogy in evangelical institutions.
For seventeen years, Bostwick worked in the Bartlesville Public School system as a teacher and leader, teaching 7th Grade English for nine years and Advanced Placement English Literature to seniors for eight years.
Bostwick is passionate about five basic areas in her life: her faith, her family, her friends, her field of study (Education), and her football –specifically, her Denver Broncos football.
“I love interacting with my students and my peers. We can laugh together, cry together, or pray together. And while we are all doing good jobs, we are all doing a good work. We know we are here for a higher purpose and mission, and that changes everything.”
