I am a 5th grade teacher with nine years teaching experience and 19 years in education. My expectations are high for both my students and myself. If I can earn a Bachelor's degree 30 years after dropping out of college, then I know each of you can achieve your dreams too.
DREAMS + ACTION = REALITY
MAKE IT HAPPEN
Make No Excuses
Go the Extra Degree
TOGETHER WE CAN!
Family is very important to me. I've been married for 36 years, blessed with 3 sons: Gary Jr. the policeman, Clayton an oil rig roughneck and SK8er, and Preston a two year cadet at the United States Military Academy at West Point, currently preparing for the last 2 years after serving as a church missionary for 18 months... I have a beautiful 5 year old grandson named Josiah and a three year old angel for a grandson named Jeremiah.
I live on my grandfather's ranch in Medina, Texas and love the hill country, wildlife, rocks, and my cows (very big pets). I also own a farm in Edna, Texas. My family's hobbies include hunting, salt water fishing, baseball, and site seeing historical locations. Personally, I enjoy relaxing by crocheting, reading, and watching old movies. (John Wayne is my HERO).
