• I was raised in Mesquite, Texas.  My Father was a University Professor in Social Work and my Mother was a career Teacher in Texas Public Schools. She retired in 1997 after 35 years of teaching First grade. I returned to Mesquite after graduation. I taught for 14 years in the Mesquite Schools teaching PreK, Kindergarten, 7 years in Pre-First and one long year in First grade. I realized Early Childhood was my passion after my year in First grade!  I was raised in Public schools from the beginning and now over 50 years later I still believe this is the best place for your child.  I have a son who graduated from Plano Schools and is a Junior in College studying Science.   I began in PISD with the start of the Early Childhood Schools. This is my 31st  year in Texas Public Schools. I am the Team Leader of the Jungle Neighborhood.
