Bio

Born in White Pine, Tennessee and reared in Morristown, Tennessee.

Attended Carson-Newman College in Jefferson City, Tennessee before enlisting in the U.S. Army where I served for six years.  I was stationed at Ft. Meade, Maryland for two years and NATO Headquarters in Izmir, Turkey for four years where I also attended the University of Maryland at Izmir, Turkey. 

I have had the privilege of visiting thirty-five of the fifty states, as well as  Italy,  Greece, Germany, Spain, Israel, Mexico, Canada, and Turkey where I lived for four years.

After serving in the U.S. Army, I used my G.I. bill to attend the University of Texas at San Antonio, earning a degree in Criminal Justice in 1982.  My daughter, Robin, was born in 1983 and I was a stay-at-home mother for two years.  Next, I taught first grade  at Highland Hills Baptist Elementary School for two years.  I had the privilege of teaching Devin Brown, a former San Antonio Spur, at Highland Hills Baptist.  Then I decided to return to school, and earned another degree in Education from the University of Texas at San Antonio.  I am certified in  Early Childhood and Gifted and Talented. 

In 1989, I began teaching in Harlandale I.S.D. where I have six years of elementary experience, one year of teaching science only at Terrell Wells Middle School, two years of experience as a mentor teacher in math and science for the Urban Systemic Initiative, and eighteen years teaching math in 6th grade at Kingsborough Middle School. In 1994, I received the St. Mary's University and Luby's Excellence in Teaching Award for San Antonio which included a $2,000 cash prize. I have also taken graduate courses in mathematics and served as a mentor teach for several teachers at Kingsborough Middle School through the district program and Education Service Center, Region 20.

I am a Baseline Bum with the San Antonio Spurs and was selected a Hero of Hope for the Class of 2013 for South Central Texas, High Plains Division, American Cancer Society.  I became involved with the American Cancer Society in 2005 after my daughter was diagnosed with cancer on Christmas Day 2004.  She is now a ten  year cancer survivor and the proud mother of  two boys, Percy (4 years old) and Orion (9 months old).
