I taught for 14 years in grades 1, 2, 3, and 6th. I was a school administrator for 18 years. I had the joy of being an elementary principal for 14 years. The last four years, I was Mentor Coordinator plus wore other hats, where I had the privilege of mentoring first and second year teachers. After retirement, I worked part time for the district. Now I serve as an elementary teaching substitute across all grade levels.
Eclectic. In teaching, you have to be open to using all ways and sources available to you. Students' learning styles are all so different. It is my responsibility as a teacher to reach all learning styles so that all children are successful in their own right.
Administrator of the Year 2005 and 2006
Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with a Kindergarten Endorsement from Abilene Christian University. Master's Degree in Educational Administration from Texas A&M Commerce.
I am a proud wife and mother. My husband and I have been married 35+ years. We enjoy a life here in Texas and in Colorado. This year, I learned to ski. What fun! I have two daughters, Anna Green and Amy Lemons. Amy has two beautiful children. We love love them so much. I feel blessed to have worked in education. The children were beautiful and I worked with some of the best teachers in America. Teaching was a joy and becoming an administrator was a dream. I always felt and still do that being an administrator was so much easier than being a teacher. I admire teachers and the work they do on a daily basis with students. Keep up the good work.
