I served 29 years as a classroom teacher in Texas. My entire career was in Midland, Texas with the exception of a semester as a beginning teacher in Plainview and a year in New Mexico. During my career, I was a classroom teacher in home economics, elementary and special education, as well as the teacher/coordinator of the home economics cooperative education program at Midland High School.
As a Texas educator, I would like to believe that I have made a difference in people’s lives as students and it would have continued into adult life. Working with TRTF is gratifying for me in knowing that efforts are being made to assist others in their respective journey as educators—past, present and future.
