Family Information:

I have no biological children, but I have numerous nieces and nephews of various ages.  I am the youngest in my family.  Family vacations are usually spent in Refugio, Dallas, and/or San Antonio.

Other Personal Information:

I love music of all sorts!  A lot of my entertainment revolves around music and sports.  I am striving for musical inclination.  One of my major goals in to expand my duties in my profession.  Eventually, I hope to create a scholarship for the children of my hometown.

I am also a student in the Department of Education and Human Performance.  I am seeking a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership.  My dissertation proposal is currently in progress.

Education has provided an avenue for me to travel abroad.  I was involved in a faculty-led study abroad program in Athens, Greece (2014), and I took a class that traveled to Madrid, Spain (2017). Both were rewarding experiences.
