Hello!  This marks the 25th year I have been an educator.  During these years, I have been a bear, yellow jacket, ghost, hawk, eagle, and a panther but it is great to be a Pine Tree Pirate!  I am a graduate of Texas Tech  University and although I did not grow up here in east Texas, I now call it home.  I have two children, a daughter who also attends Texas Tech and a son who attends Tyler Jr College.
