I started teaching Pre-K in Paint Rock in August of 2019, so I have been here a year, now.
I taught 4th grade for 2 years in Ballinger, from 1983-1985
I taught Pre-K in Ballinger for 22 years, from 1997-2019
My earlier work experience includes: secretary, jewelry store salesperson, day care, catering, church cook, ranch work, and small business owner (Sandwich Shop), And don’t forget wife and mother! I stayed home with my kids in between teaching 4th grade and pre-k. I came back to teaching after my children were all in school.
I have been married to Cliff for 38 years. We married in 1982 and have 3 children: Cody (34), Courtney (33) and Cameron (31). They graduated from Ballinger High School, and all 3 graduated from Texas A&M. Cody attended Texas A&M Pharmacy school and is a pharmacist at Brownwood Regional Hospital. Courtney attended the University of Houston School of Optometry, and is an optometrist in Graham, Texas. She is married to Sam (Assistand Principal at Graham HS) and they have 2 children (Casey is 5, and Luke is 2). Cameron has a degree in Construction Science and has worked for Kiewet building those huge off shore rigs, and has been married to Jessica for almost 2 years. Cliff and I are empty nesters, but I do have a huge dog (Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepherd) named Dakota. We love to visit our kids and grandkids!
