I am a graduate of Texas A&M University (Bachelor's degree) and the University of Texas at San Antonio (Master's degree).
I am a former national athlete (U.S. bobsled team), author and editor, and avid animal lover. But my true love is teaching. I decided long ago that nothing is more exciting than working with students who discover the joy and greatness of literature and writing.
When my students learn the true value of education and reading and writing, I find that far more exhilarating than racing down a mountain at 90MPH. Also, the chances of my students crashing me into an icy wall are far less likely!
