Taught Earth Science, Math and General Science courses for two years at a Jr. High School in Abilene, Tex from 1965-67. Although I loved teaching, I accepted a Civil Service job and retired from Civil Service in 1993 after a 23 year career in Financial Management.
I am an accomplished artist and love to draw cartoons. I tried to incorporate my art skills (especially cartooning) in my teaching to make learning more enjoyable. I quickly discovered that students learned and retained more when the learning process was fun.
Did not teach long enough to earn any teaching awards but earned numerous awards while in Air Force and Civil Service jobs. Most awards dealt with management skills.
Graduate of Baylor University with a Bachelor of Science degree. Majored in Geology with a Minor in Math. Numerous continuing education courses while working for Civil Service.
Immediately after graduation served 3 years as an Office in the Air Force. Currently am a fine art painter in oils and acrylics. Have paintings displayed in a prominent gallery in downtown San Antonio. Still enjoy cartooning and many of my cartoons have been published. Married for 53 years and have 2 children, 5 grandchildren and 2 great grandsons. Serve as a deacon in my local church and am proud to be called a Christian.
