I graduated from Livingston High School in 1976 and from Sam Houston State University in 1996.
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Political Science with a Minor in History, along with my K-12 Certification in Special Education.
I began my teaching career here in Livingston and I am currently in my 21st year with Timber Creek Elementary. I taught Special Education Resource classes for the first ten years and now I am in my eleventh year with the Life Skills classroom.
I am single, have four sisters, one being my twin sister Linda, along with Debbie, Mary and Thelma. I also have a brother named Mike. I have eleven nieces and nephews, fourteen great and three great-great nieces and nephews. Also, over the past fifteen years, I have rescued twelve wonderful dogs, nine of which I still have today!
