This is my twenty-fifth year in education, and I'm still as excited as I was my first year of teaching. I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education with a reading minor and a master's in education in reading from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX. Eat 'em up Kats! I have worked as a site supervisor/writer/teacher for Rice University and Writers in the Schools Creative Writing Camp for the past fifteen summers. I enjoy spending time with my two grandsons, family and friends. My hobbies are reading, writing, watching movies, playing golf, fishing, and being at the beach. I have a wonderful husband-Brandon, a beautiful daughter-Lauren, two precious grandsons-Braylen & Brentley, and a great son-in-law-Blaze. My two dogs-Pheona and Huck are a big part of our family too.
