I have attended many professional development conferences over the years. These included trainings in Conscious Discipline, ESL, Early Childhood, and Computer Science. I have also attended National Head Start Conferences in different states that address all the aspects of the program. Each year, teachers are required to attend trainings that enhance their performance in the school setting.
I was born and raised in Bonham. I left Bonham to attend college. I married and lived in Tyler where I taught school. I divorced and moved to the Dallas area and also taught school. I did not have children of my own but helped raise my nephew. I have a Yorkie named Dusty and he is my sidekick at all times. My mom taught school and was a principal for Bonham Independent School District for 42 years. I have one sister who also resides in Bonham and grew up attending Bonham schools. My nephew and his wife have two children and live in Oregon.
I am a third generation teacher for Bonham ISD. My grandmother taught for many years and my mom was a principal for the district. I enjoy keeping my great nephews in my spare time. They are five and six years old. I also enjoy reading and shopping.
My favorite quote is from Dr. Suess:
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot. Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
