B.S. Conservation Wildlife Biology, BYU
M.S. Library Science, UNT
I am starting my twenty-first year in Beeville ISD, all at Moreno Junior High School. I taught science, primarily 8th grade, for 10 years. I am starting my eleventh year as the Librarian.
Before becoming an educator, I worked my way through college. I’ve worked as a waitress, managed a pet store, and worked at a veterinarian’s office as a technician and secretary. I also worked as a substitute teacher. After subbing at all levels, I knew junior high was where I belong.
I am married and have two children that attend A.C. Jones High School. One is a senior and one is a sophomore. Both play tennis and golf. We have four cats, a turtle, and numerous fish.
I have a wide variety of hobbies that I enjoy in my limited spare time. I enjoy geocaching, catching Pokemon, and traveling. Of course I love to read! I enjoy YA books, especially sci fi and fantasy, but don’t limit myself to those. Fishing is another activity that I enjoy ( and wish I could do more often.)
I am actively involved in Boy Scouts of America. I am a former Webelos Den Leader and Scoutmaster. I now serve on the troop committee as Treasurer and adult OA Representative. I am registered with a Venture Crew (co-ed Scouting) in Corpus Christi, as well. Ask me about Cavalcade at Philmont Scout Ranch.
I have always enjoyed traveling. I grew up as a Navy brat and moved frequently. I have been to Japan, South Korea, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Spain, Bahamas, St. Marten, St. Kitts, Honduras, and St. Thomas, USVI. I hope to add more countries soon.
