B.S. Conservation Wildlife Biology, BYU
M.S. Library Science, UNT
I am starting my twenty-fourth year in Beeville ISD, all at Moreno Junior High School. I taught science, primarily 8th grade, for 10 years. This is year fourteen 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 Junior at Texas Tech studying energy commerce . My son is a freshman at Texas A&M pursuing an engineering degree. We have four cats, a dog, 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, District Chair, and as an associate advisor for the Order of the Arrow. I am registered with a Venture Crew in Corpus Christi, as well.
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. We did drive through a small part of Austria but didn’t stop. I was born in the Philippines, but have no memory of being there. I hope to add more countries soon.
