About Me
After graduating from Pepperdine in 1961, I began my educational career in the Los Angeles City School District teaching sixth graders. I was a teacher and elementary school principal in California from 1961-1973. I then had the opportunity of being a principal and living in Western Colorado before coming to San Antonio in 1985. From 1985-1993 I served the Fort Sam Houston ISD as an elementary school assistant principal. The Northeast School District became my home in 1993. For ten years I served the Woodstone and Montgomery communities as their assistant principal. It is my honor and pleasure to serve as the principal carrying on the education vision of teamwork and excellence established by those that opened Longs Creek. I feel privileged and blessed to have been associated with outstanding educators throughout my career and I have found Longs Creek to be the same.

I have always had a love of the outdoors. My hobbies include fishing and gardening. My two children live in the Dallas area and they have given me three beautiful, delightful grandchildren.

Technology and Relationships as a Teacher

Posted on November 8, 2009 at 2:28pm 0 Comments

I embrace technology. It is one of the best friends we have in education today. However, the benefits of technology will not begin to reach their greatest potential until we get to know the personalities of every student and build trusting relationships with them. There is no substitute for RELATIONSHIPS. The financial cost is low; the emotional cost is high but being successful, as a teacher demands it!
