Thank you for accessing my page! I am the new Journalism Instructor at Brownsboro High School and I am excited to be able to instill the knowledge of journalistic writing, photography and graphic design into the minds of our students. I am a 1975 graduate of Texas A&M-Commerce (East Texas State University for those that remember) with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and History. I taught Journalism at Paris High School for five years advising the yearbook and student newspaper.
I left teaching to work for Southwestern Bell Telephone Company (now AT&T) for over 20 years, retiring as a Corporate Manager for Affiliate Issues. Most of my career was spent writing contracts and documents for the company. After retiring, i returned to my home town of Paris, TX to care for my elderly parents until they passed away. I also began substitute teaching at North Lamar High School and worked there for two years before getting the opportunity to move to Chandler to live on the lake.
I began substitute teaching at Brownsboro High School in the fall of 2011 and have completed five school years here. During that time, I have done long term subbing assignments in History and Speech and Debate, as well as, subbing in just about every classroom at BHS. I have subbed in Journalism many, many times and I am familiar with the operations of the class and the production and publication of the yearbook, Bear Tracks, and the student news magazine, Bear Facts.
I hope to continue the successes of the classes and to teach our young people the value of Journalism in our society.
