A LOVE OF READING CAN TRANSCEND ALL BOUNDARIES
Originally from Big Spring, Texas, I graduated BSHS, Howard College, attended UT Permian Basin, & went on to graduate Texas A & M Corpus Christi, living in Corpus for 20 years before coming back home to West Texas.
I write poetry, essays, and short stories in my free time. Music is my life, my favorite color is green and I run on cheese enchiladas and coffee!! I travel when I can, take pictures wherever I go, and take care of my cats. I have been married since 1999.
I am so happy to be spending another year among the staff I love, in the friendliest town that I've ever lived in. Aside from teaching, I also coach UIL. I hope to inspire my students as much as they inspire me.

“Yet there was always in me, even when I was very small, the sense that I ought to be somewhere else. And wander I did, although, in my everyday life, I had nowhere to go and no imaginable reason on earth why I should want to leave. The buses took to the interstate without me, the trains sped by. So I wandered the world through books. I went to Victorian England in the pages of 'Middlemarch' and 'A little Princess', and to Saint Petersburg before the fall of the tsar with 'Anna Karenina'. I went to Tara, and Manderley, and Thornfield Hall, all those great houses, with their high ceilings and high drama, as I read 'Gone with the Wind', 'Rebecca' and 'Jane Eyre'.”
