Graduated from Calallen High School in 1979. Attended Texas A&M University in College Station and Corpus Christi. Bachelor Degree in Finance and Secondary Teaching Certificate. While teaching in Anchorage, Alaska for ten years, I attended the University of Alaska where I studied Alaskan and Russian History in order to acheive my Alaskan Teaching Certificate.
After working in the Finance/Accouunting field for a number of years, I went back to school to earn my Secondary Teaching Certificate. I then taught at Tuloso Midway for 2 years before moving to Anchorage, Alaska. In Alaska, I was employed by Cook Inlet Tribal Council to work with Anchorage ISD teaching native Alaskan students. My husband's job transfer brought us back to San Antonio where I taught Language Arts at Rudder Middle School with the Northside ISD for 8 years. Finally, we moved back to Calallen where I have taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade for ten more years.
