Hello! I love teaching and can't think of anything I'd rather do! I am teaching kinder,1st and 2nd graders in the morning and the PPCD program in the afternoon. This is my first year to teach PPCD and I am learning a lot.
This is my 3rd year at WCE and my 36th in CBISD. I have taught at Henry O.Tanner, Brazoria Elementary, and Barrow Elementary. I was also based at CHS. I have been fortunate to be able to teach so many different things. I have taught homemaking, kindergarten, pre-k, 1st grade, Homebound, DAEP, Special Education and I was also a librarian. Each new grade presents new and exciting challenges. As I said, "I love teaching!"
My Bachelor's degree is in Home Economics from Lamar University in Beaumont. My Master's degree is in Early Childhood Education from UHCL. My library certificate is also from UHCL.
I have been married to Bob for 36 years and we have a daughter, Deb, who is in her senior year at UH main campus and majoring in photography. Our family includes Shadow, a Russell Terrier mix from the SPCA and 7 guinea pigs!
