"Hello, I'd like for you to know that I have been committed to teaching and educating others most of my life. When I was 13 years old, I went with my grandmother to help with the Head Start Programs in the 60's. As I went through school, I strived to do the best I could. Sometimes it was a struggle, but I graduated from high school at the age of 17. I went straight to a community college for two years to get my associate degree. From there I received my double major from the University of Kentucky in elementary education and special education. My first year of teaching involved math, which was my least favorite, but it was a job to get my foot in the door. The following year I began teaching high school special education, where my true commitment was. I taught those students how to survive in our real world and did many extracurricular activities, such as making items and selling them. We had our own little store. I taught them how to budget their check books, their food cost and their time, how to go about getting a job, etc. As time went on, I went to our Middle School. Again I taught the students practical living skills, how to read and write to get along in society. I started to prepare them for different jobs that they could perform. While teaching, I returned to school to get my 5th year degree and my Rank I in Special Education and Microcomputers. After teaching 27 years in middle school and high school, I retired because of health issues. I wasn't out of the system for long as I came back as a permanent substitute for a semester. I have now been substituting long and short term for all ages in surrounding counties. At one time, I also taught adult education. My most recent jobs have been in the elementary schools, K-6.


I have raised two daughters who are very involved in education also. One is a guidance counselor and the other is a PTO President and on a Site Based Council. I continue to teach their children and many others in our community. I've been at it a long time, but I feel sure t" less...
