This is my second year of teaching at Lockhart High School. I am originally from Port Lavaca, Texas and lived in Victoria, Texas for many years. Most of my teaching experience has been in the Victoria area. I taught English for 14 years at St. Joseph High School, four years at Victoria High School (now Victoria East) and three years at Edna High School. I moved to Kyle, Texas in the summer of 2015 to be closer to my daughter, who lives in South Austin. My daughter Jacqueline is 26 years old and recently graduated with her masters degree in social work and became engaged to her long-term boyfriend. They are planning to marry in November 2017. I have a gray tabby cat named Watson and enjoy reading, gardening, and spending time with my family.
