I retired from teaching in May, 2015 and am now a paraeducator at the middle school. I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree in education from the University of Kansas. In addition, I have completed graduate course work at Baker University School of Professional and Graduate Studies and St. Mary College. The Kansas Department of Education has recognized me as being a highly qualified instructor in special education, English, reading, and math. As a paraeducator, I can continue working with students and use my education background.
When I'm not at school, I am watching Kansas basketball, going to movies, listening to music, playing with my cats Bonnie and Clyde, going to Costco, watching WWE wrestling, and spending time with my family and friends.
The most interesting thing I have done recently is go on a cruise to the beautiful Bahamas and Key West, Florida. Also, I am planning a trip to Los Angeles when the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures opens in 2017 or 2018. In addition, I plan to go to where I can see the total eclipse of the sun in North America on August 21, 2017.
One of my goals in life is to visit each of the fifty states. So far, I have completed about 75% of this goal.
