Courses: World History
Degrees: BS – Lamar University
I was born a southern girl in New Orleans. Let’s just say it was before Katrina!
At the ripe old age of three months I moved to Port Arthur, Texas (east of Houston) where I did most of my raising!
I was raised with multiple generations from great grandmothers to aunts, uncles, cousins and grandfather and grandmother. I have one brother who is 1year, 1month, and 1 day younger than me.
I had the wonderful opportunity as a young teenager to go to Camp Waldemar every summer for seven years.
I graduated from St. Mary’s Hall here in San Antonio several (multiple times over) years ago, and also had the exciting experience of being a boarding student. I attended first TCU, then moved on to Lamar University in Beaumont, to be closer to home for a change. I received a BS in Speech, Theatre, and History from Lamar, plus my teacher certification.
Then I fell in love again with my old boyfriend from St. Mary’s Hall and John and I married, finished dental school at Emory in Atlanta, where I had my first job teaching (junior school, need I say more?), then moved to Melfort, Saskatchewan, where my extraordinary children, Joseph and Ann Claire were born. After several years in Canada we moved back to San Antonio, and have been here ever since. (Oh, by the way, I was on the Saskatchewan champion curling team while there, but we lost in the first rounds of nationals.)
I began teaching again at Christ Lutheran Day School, three and four year olds.
Then I taught for seven years at Ursuline Academy before it closed.
I have been at Incarnate Word High School ever since and am now in my 24th year here. For the most part I have been teaching World History with an emphasis on art history.
I have the most beautiful grandsons, Johnny and Georgy, and they are one of the best things that has ever happened!
