I am a certified teacher/trainer/librarian with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education from the University of Kentucky. I taught in private Early Learning Centers before moving back to Texas, where I taught Kindergarten. I have 18 hours towards my MEd from Texas State- I left halfway through to go to UT for Library Science. I taught public school for 8 years- then began teaching convicted felons with the Federal Prison in Bastrop. Additionally, I taught Parenting Classes and coordinated many programs. I retired in April, 2012. The next day, I was fortunate to get the apple of my eye, light of my life!! Her name is Harley. She is a 75 pound German Rottweiler. I have been training her for the AKC Good Citizen Program and to become a service dog.
My Nanny training - single parent -raised two boys!!! Dallas is now 32, and Denver is 30. Both are married and live very close to me! I have a grandson, Jace, 3, and we are expecting a granddaughter on June 15th. We all live in the country out in Bastrop County, about 15 minutes from the airport.
Since retiring in 2012, I have worked security at Circuit of the Americas since it first opened. Additionally, I worked as a Marketing Agent for a while and a Security Officer at Barton Creek Mall., ie "Mall Cop".
I enjoy spending time with my parents, who also live right down the road. We enjoy being out on the ranch, and spend lots of time swimming at their pool and fishing in their tanks!
I love to travel, and have been on 17 cruises!!! I referee soccer and volleyball for clubs and schools all over Central Texas.
I am a people person and love working with young children/infants. I'll be on a learning mission with twins, if you give me an opportunity!
Please feel free to ask any further questions, or look me up on LinkEd and/or FaceBook! Also, pay is Negotiable!
