Me, Myself and I
A little bit of information about myself includes: I have been teaching for thirty years and I am excited to teach Business and Journalism this 2019-2020 school year! I have been involved with many academic and extra curricular areas of education including UIL, Odyssey of the Mind World Teams, NJHS, peer tutoring and mentoring. I am beginning my eleventh year in Huffman and love teaching the students, and working with the talented teachers and staff at Huffman Middle School.
I am a native Texan and have lived in this area with my family since 1982. I grew up in East Texas where after graduation from Kilgore High School, I attended Kilgore Junior College. I then moved to Austin where I graduated from the University of Texas in 1980. After several years of teaching I attended Stephen F. Austin University and earned a master's degree in Education. I feel like my strong educational background and many years of teaching have helped me to see that teaching is very rewarding and an inspiring experience.
I have many hobbies including reading, projects around my house and traveling to visit family, friends and new places. During the summers I have often volunteered at Methodist and St. Luke's Hospitals in the Houston Medical Center. It is very rewarding to help people find their way around such a large complex when visiting family and friends.
I am married with a wonderful husband, a handsome son, a beautiful daughter in law, a precious granddaughter and grandson. Oh yes, my husband and I have a very cute miniature schnauzer, Josie!
