Modern Foreign Languages Department
I am an adjunct professor at UMHB. I am a retired public school teacher, having taught most of my career in Temple ISD. I taught for two years in Weatherford ISD, and one year in Kennard ISD. My area of instruction has been Language Arts. I have taught gifted and talented students, to struggling beginning readers, and everything inbetween. Having a Masters Degree and ESL certification helped me bridge to the college level after retirement. I have a heart for students, no matter the age, and I enjoy being able to take them from where they are to higher levels of proficiency. At UMHB, I have been blessed to work with International students who need assistance polishing their English language skills as they pursue advanced degrees.
In addition to my part-time teaching duties at UMHB, I work in my husband's insurance office, and am a licensed agent for Personal Lines. I have two grown children, Drew and Elizabeth. Drew is a preacher of the gospel at Southside Church of Christ in Mt. Pleasant, TX. He and his wife, Meagan, are the parents of Daphne, my first grandchild; and are expecting daughter number two in mid-October, 2018. Elizabeth is a dental assistant, and was recently married to an outstanding young man, Nolan. They are now expecting their first child, my third grand-child, in May, 2019. Brian is my husband, and we live with our sweet miniature schnauzer, Lily, and our not-so-sweet Maltepoo, Benny. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, crocheting, and traveling.
The Temple Literacy Council Board of Directors voted recently to allow newly formed Central Texas English School to partner with them. As a founding member of the school, I look forward to helping develop the program and partnerships that will enable Central Texas English learners to more fully participate in our community.
