Comments:

Jim and I have been married for 36 years. We started out in North Carolina where he was a forest biologist for Weyerhaeuser. I had attended Montgomery County Community College for two years so once we moved to NC I returned to school. I received my bachelors degree and my masters degree from East Carolina University. We spent about 10 years there before moving to Texas. I taught for many years at various grade levels before becoming a school administrator. I attended Lamar University were I received my mid-management certification and then superintendent certification. I have been a school district superintendent for 8 years. Recently my school district suffered a tremendous amount of damage from Hurricane Ike. The school district provides a home for me and it was completely destroyed by the storm. Luckily, the home that Jim and I own on Lake Toledo Bend was spared from the wrath of Ike.

School Story:

There are only two things that really stick in my head from high school days. The first is that I did not get chosen to be in South Pacific because I did not audition well enough. My "cue" was someone just knocked at my door and I am in curlers. What would I do. I guess in high school it was a big deal. Today it's like - oh well! The other thing I remember is being told by our high school counselor when I was a senior that I was not college material and that I should just get married and stay home and have babies. Well - I took some of his advice!!!!
