Educational History:

I graduated from Baytown Robert E. Lee High School in 1968.

I went straight after graduation to Lee Junior College and got several semesters and classes behind me.

Next, I transferred to Sam Houston State University where I finished most of my degree except for a few summer classes at University of Houston.

After teaching for about 3 years, I  added a Master's Degree from Stephen F. Austin.

Degrees and Certifications:

Current Position:

After teaching at Shepherd Elementary for my first two years, I transferred to teaching at Tarkington and have stayed here.

I taught third grade at Tarkington Elementary for 30 years before deciding to take the 7th grade position teaching Texas History.

Then I added 8th grade U.S. History classes the next year that evolved the following year to U.S. History, Teen Leadership, and Reading.

Finally landing where I currently teach 8th grade Reading.

This is my 42nd year with Tarkington ISD.

Previous Position:

My first teaching job was teaching 3rd grade at Shepherd Elementary.

I taught there for two years and then decided I needed to move to Tarkington where my home was.
