Growing up in western Kansas where my family still lives, K-State was the only college I ever wanted to attend. While my fashion design major at K-State led to my first career in that field, 24 years ago I became a teacher in Texas. I wanted where my two feet stood to really make a difference in this world. It is very important to me to help young people gain a better understanding of our shrinking world. Through my own travels as a teacher, and through the creative use of technology in my classroom, I am bringing the world to my students. I hope that something they learn from me will one day help them find their own unique place in this world.
