I am 49 years young and a native of Tennessee. I am single with no children. Even though I have no children of my own, the LORD has blessed me with an abundance of children throughout my life. It is the love of all these children that sparked my desire to become a teacher. I love learning new things and want to pass that thirst for knowledge on to our youth. My mother always told me that I could be anything I wanted to, if I wanted to bad enough. I have always taken that to heart and want to instill that same confidence in others.
After working in the business field for more than 20 years, I returned to college at the young age of 41 years. I managed to go to college full-time while working 4 or 5 (I lost count around then) part-time jobs and hold numerous leadership positions in my church and the community. This flexible schedule afforded me the much needed time to complete my studies. As a result, I graduated cum laude in December of 2008 from the University of Tennessee at Martin receiving my Bachelor of Science in Education Degree. I am currently working on my Master of Religious Education Degree at Liberty University.
One of my passions is research and technology. I take great pleasure in doing all kinds of research. It is just what I do. I’m the go-to person. I am ALWAYS up for a challenge. So, it is not surprising that I love working with and learning about the rapidly expanding technology field. I do have other interests, such as creative writing, reading, public speaking, singing, sudoku, arts & crafts, board games, swimming, and fishing. I have recently discovered the addicting field of blogging and have decided to surrender and dive in!
Teamwork divides the effort and multiplies the effect.
