I love teaching and triathlons! I went to Northwood University in Midland, Michigan. While there, I played on the tennis team and ran track. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration in 1983, and I worked for General Motors. I moved to Houston when my husband, at the time, accepted a position with Exxon. We purchased a home in Clear Lake and I still live there. Before becoming a teacher, I worked in Houston as an account executive. Becoming a teacher was one of the best moves I have ever made. I am the Assistant Swim Coach, and I love my profession and students!
I have two sons, Micah and Noah. Micah is a Baylor graduate and is working as a Pastor in Ft. Worth. Noah is a University of Texas San Antonio graduate and works as an Information Systems Specialist for a firm in Austin. I also have a fat cat named T2.
My favorite hobby is triathlons. While running track in college I overheard someone talking about a race where you could swim, bike and run. I thought it sounded fun so I entered my first triathlon over 30 years ago, and I'm still competing in them. I accomplished a long time goal in 2009 by finishing my first Ironman Triathlon. It consisted of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and a 26.2 mile run. It took me 13.5 hours to complete, but I did it! I also competed in Ironman Cozumel and Ironman Texas. I qualified for the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon which means I swam in the frigid waters of San Francisco Bay from Alcatraz Island to shore. That race had been on my bucket list for a long time and was the most memorable race of my life!
I hope I can inspire my students to find a passion in life and pursue their dreams. My motto is work hard, be nice to people, and you will succeed in life!
