About me: Hello. This is my 26th year at Lewisville High School. Before becoming a teacher, I was a Group Health Insurance Underwriter and then a Marketing Representative. I am a fifth generation Native Texan. I was born and raised in Bonham, Texas up near the Red River and graduated from Bonham High School in 1981. I have a bachelor's degree from Austin College in 1985 and a Masters degree in Education from TWU in 2002. I worked a lot of years in between before I became a teacher.
I've been a resident of this area since 1993 and a member of Trietsch UMC for about the same amount of time. I play bass guitar for Cross Timbers, a Bluegrass Gospel band. You might see us or hear us in the area. Besides exercising, I also enjoy fixing things, working on cars, and old movies and building things with wood. I have gotten to an age where I enjoy "puttering" in my garage workshop, something I never thought I'd enjoy, but I DO! I also enjoy reading and have two adult male labs with a lot of energy who love to play.
I enjoy walking my dog(s) and running/aerobics, etc. I've gotten to an age where I have to work harder on managing weight and staying healthy. Speaking of which, I like to cook (and eat).
My wife Carol is an employee of the district and works at Marcus High School (yeah, I know...). Both kids graduated from LISD schools and have completed college, then graduate school and have gone off to have their own careers. My daughter is married. No grandkids, but I do have a lot of grand-puppies. My son is an Army Investigator and just got home from being in Kuwait. It's great having him back home, or at least back in Texas.
I have taught a range of subjects since I've been here, but Math Models is my current gig and I actually love it. I hope your kids will catch my enthusiasm.
