• Mike and Steph 32nd anniversary in SA

    Hi and Welcome to my web page for the 2017 - 2018 school year!

     I am excited and looking forward to meeting everyone for the new school year. 
    Have you been reading all summer?  I sure hope so!! 
    My first nine years of teaching were spent  in the Azle ISD teaching second and third grade, and the last eight years at EMS teaching second grade at CSES and third at HCES.                                   I received my teaching degree from Texas Woman's University.

    My husband Michael and I have been married for 36 years and we have two great children, Brandi and Matthew.  Our daughter Brandi graduated from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida and is an Air Traffic Controller in the towers at DFW Airport. She and her husband Rusty live in Weatherford, TX. In December 2015 they presented us with our very first grand baby, a boy they named Dylan Andrew.  What a blessing and joy he is and I have had another wonderful summer watching him grow!
             Our son Matthew now currently resides in  Chicago, IL area. He works as an IT tech for a Chicago hospital and he and his girlfriend reside in Lincoln Park. He grew up playing soccer, coaching youth soccer and still enjoys watching the sport. He is a computer whiz, which I am so thankful for, as he was always repairing our home computer, as I tend to frequently cause it to crash. I sure miss him and his availability to continue to do so but he often does remote repairs for me!

      We have several pets, a  17 year OLD beagle named Brett and an adopted  little white poodle named Holly. [sadly my poodle went over the rainbow bridge this summer : ( ] We also recently adopted a lab mix named Xena. Our latest addition is a silly little stray feral kitten who we have tamed and now refer to as Sammy. As you can tell I am a big fan of pets which led me to one of my favorite hobbies, volunteering with the animal shelter in Weatherford.                                                                                                                                                  

    My motto is "Don't shop. Adopt!"
     
    My other hobbies include scrap-booking with Brandi, reading (I think Kindles are the greatest invention ever!!) going  to the movies, visiting museums, traveling, and of course spending time with my family and friends..

    I am looking forward to another great year at Comanche Springs, I hope you are too! 

     
    Here are a few pictures of my family and pets! I will try to add more to them as the year goes by!
