I entered the field of education in 1995 at South Plains College as Certified Tutor in Mathematics as l completed my undergraduate course work at Texas Tech University. I later began teaching for the Mathematics Department at South Plains College as an Adjunct Professor in 1997 while teaching mathematics at Anton High School. Upon graduate studies at Texas Tech University,, I was invited to become a full-time Professor of Computer Information Systems at South Plains College.
With a Master of Science Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies focused on Management Information Systems and Educational Instructional Technology, I helped to coordinate the processes of student advising and in managing student retention. I am currently working on curriculum design within the structure of Computer Information Systems and Business Administration at South Plains College. I was awarded the SPC Advising Excellence Award in 2008.
In my spare time -
I enjoyed the opportunity in gaining roles in several South Plains College community musicals, including: "110 in the Shade", "Oliver", "Oklahoma", "The King and I", "Gypsy", "No, No, Nanette", "Man of La Mancha", and "Lil' Abner". My prized thespian experience was playing the part of Daddy Warbucks in the crowd-pleasing production of “Annie.”
I am also an avid bowler having won the Hockley County City Singles Championship and the Tyler Invitational All-Events Championship. I topped off the 2003 season as Texas State Champion (USBC) in Division 5 Singles where my singles score is currently the state record. For several years, I served as the faculty advisor for the South Plains College Bowling Club where I planned fund-raising tournaments for charity and scholarship.
I enjoy writing stories, poems and songs. My thrill these days is playing music and performing live at various venues with friends and colleagues - as a guitarist and vocalist - still dreaming the dream of getting that "big gig" some day!
