     I grew up in Clovis, NM.  I have 3 great children, Ean, Bronwyn, & Layton.  I have a beautiful daughter-in-law named Kayla who is married to Ean.  They gave me my first grandson Jake in 2016. They are about to give me another grandson any day now!  My daughter Bronwyn attends WTAMU and is going to be married in September to her fiance Jake(another Jake!).  My youngest child, Layton, lives and works in Lubbock.

    I attended ENMU and received a BBA in Finance.  I received my teaching certification in 1990.

    This will be my 29th year at Farwell Schools.  26 of those years I taught 2nd grade.  The past 2 years I have been the ESL Director and Migrant Coordinator and I will continue to do so.

     Working for Farwell Schools is the BEST!!!
