I began my career in education as a part time aide and part time cafeteria worker. I enjoyed working with students from the start. It is such a rewarding endeavor to witness the academic growth of children, knowing the sky is the limit. Eight years passed before I took the step to continue my education. I graduated in 2008 at the age of 46 from Stephen F. Austin State University. This my 7th year to teach kindergarten with one year teaching 3rd grade last year. Teaching is in my blood, and I can’t think of doing anything else.
