“I love to teach because I’m just a big kid. I get to joke around and interact with kids all day and at the same time teach them to ways of the world. Aside from playing ball, I love to spend time traveling with my family and just being with them. When I need to slow things down I love hunting with my dad or I go tend to the small herd of cows I own.”
Levi is married Katelyn Walker who is a counselor at Marshall Elementary. They have two daughters, Remi Lynn, 9, who attends Checotah Intermediate and Andi Jane, 7, who attends Marshall Elementary.
