B.S. Conservation Wildlife Biology, BYU
M.S. Library Science, UNT
I am starting my twenty-second year in Beeville ISD, all at Moreno Junior High School. I taught science, primarily 8th grade, for 10 years. This is year twelve 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 belonged.
I am married and have two children. My daughter is a college freshman and my son is a junior at A.C. Jones. He is in band, choir, and plays tennis and golf, along with various other activities. We have four cats and a turtle.
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 district committee as the advancement coordinator. 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, Belize, St. Thomas, USVI, England, France, Italy, Vatican City, Curacao, and Aruba. I was born in the Philippines, but have no memory of being there. I hope to add more countries soon.
