I have been teaching at Hodges Bend Middle School since 1991. I am married and have two children - both Kempner H.S. graduates. My son is a Tarleton State University graduate with a degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology. My daughter is a freshman civil engineering major at Texas A & M University - Kingsville on a softball and academic scholarship. I enjoy baseball, softball, football, reading, playing with my dogs, fostering rescue dogs (mostly pugs), and volunteering at my church. My favorite way to learn about history is to visit historical places. I like to share my travel experiences with my students to make history come alive to them.
