Biography:

 

I retired from the Air Force in 1994 and moved to Texas from Anchorage, Alaska.  I began teaching in Dallas ISD in the Troops to Teachers program.  While in the Air Force, I found my passion in working with children by being a baseball and golf coach.  This led me in becoming a teacher.  A counselor I knew in Dallas ISD liked the way I communicated with children and suggested that I become a counselor.  This suggestion led me back to college and to complete the counselor program at Dallas Baptist University.

 

When I am on my free time, I enjoy playing baseball and golf.  I have played on an adult baseball league in Dallas and completed in the Adult Baseball Championship in Phoenix, AZ.  Also, I have competed in the Golf Channel Amateur National Championship in Palm Springs, CA.

 

I love competition and teaching children in being both a good winner and a good loser.  I have taught children how to play the game of Chess and the proper technique in winning and losing.  In addition, I love teaching math and have tutored children on many occasions in this subject.

 

As a counselor, I enjoy helping children overcome any issues they may have that causes a detriment to their ability to learn.  I help children in both group and individual counseling.  Talking and helping children brings me lots of joy and satisfaction in helping them succeed.
