Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.

About Me

I teach various English elective courses, theater, and direct the One-Act Play. Previously, I taught at Texas Tech University while getting my masters, and then one year as a long-term ESL and English sub at Midway I.S.D.
