I have been married to the same great guy for 28 years. Danny and I have 2 daughters, Megan and Madison. Megan is 25 and was a 13 year Roughneck. She is a recent graduate of Texas State University in San Marcos with a degree in Health Administration. She lives and works in Austin. Maddy is an 10th grader at White Oak High School. She is a very typical “teen”. Her hobbies include listening to music, talking/texting on her cell phone, being with friends, talking/texting on her cell phone, being on the computer, and talking/texting on her cell phone. Maddy is really enjoying being a manager for our awesome Varsity Volleyball team. She is also a GREAT babysitter (infant on up) so give her a call.
I was a Pine Tree Pirate from start to finish. I then received my BS in Elementary Education from North Texas State University and my Masters from UT Tyler. I have taught for 28 fun years. Seventeen of these years were in Kindergarten; 1 in fifth grade; 2 in Transitional First; and the last 9 have been in Second grade. When I changed from Kindergarten to Second I told my students that I had finally gotten smart enough to go to a “big” grade . They were very impressed. However, I had the good fortune to have a few of those same kids when they became Second graders. They soon found out that wasn’t quite the truth. I have truly enjoyed each age group I have worked with. They all have their own unique challenges and rewards, keeping life interesting!
