I started teaching in Malakoff in 2005 but later moved to another district. I returned to Malakoff two years ago.This year I will be responsible for Spanish 1, Creative Writing, and ESL.
I taught in CrossRoads for four years and then returned home to Malakoff. A few years ago I volunteered to do One Act Play and UIL Journalism. I came to realize what an impact UIL has on our students. As a result, I continue to involve myself in UIL activities. These students are so important. If I can make a difference, I want to do this!
I am a widow. We were married for 37 years.We have three beautiful daughters. Two went to Malakoff High School and later went to North Texas. One went to A&M in College Station. All three earned their Bachelor’s degree. One now has her Master’s degree. One of my daughters rescued some kittens so I have cats but really want another dog.
When I am not teaching I have several hobbies. Favorites include kayaking, being part of a chase team for hot-air balloons, reading for pleasure, photography, and listening to different genres of music. I also like traveling and learning about different areas of the United States and Europe. My husband and I hosted students through an exchange program for several years. We had kids from Germany, Brazil, and the Netherlands. They all went to Malakoff High School. I am passionate about teaching. I love what I do.
