I am proud to be a 10th generation Texan (there's a little Arkansas/Missouri, Tennessee, Irish, and Scottish blood in me too, which explains a lot!)!
I was born on Bergstrom Air Force Base in Austin. My dad was an Air Force Sergeant, so we moved around as I grew up. I got to live in places like Bellevue Nebraska, San Antonio Texas, Kansas City Missouri (Belton), and my favorite...Talofofo Guam. Thankfully we landed back in Texas...I graduated from Georgetown High School in 1979.
I am blessed to have attended and graduated from Concordia University @ Austin (Go Tornados!)...at the old campus in downtown Austin. I learned from inspired professors! My major is 4th-8th Elementary Education.
My wife, Vera, and I have been married for 39 years. Besides being patient, Vera is an engineer for the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality. She assists Texas residents with water issues, which is keeping her very busy these days!
The biggest blessing of our lives is our son Josh!! He graduated from Texas State University and works for a company that hires people to work for companies here in Texas. We are lucky that his house is only 5 minutes away and we see him often as we can!! His fiance Kim (our daughter) and our grand-doggies Stella and Eli "Pumpkin Head" live with them too.
Vera and I travel as much as we can! We've traveled to many states within the US , with just a few states to go. The last few years, we've been to Alaska and the Bahamas. A few summers ago, we flew to Hawaii and cruised to several of the Hawaiian Islands...another amazingly beautiful place!!! We also like to travel all the way to Lake Buchanan and Lake Georgetown, which are our personal favorites!!
My Mom had my brother and I flashing the Longhorn sign before we walked...and we have bled orange since...Hook'em!!! We will come back! We also have many loved loved ones that choose to be Aggies, bless their hearts!
I am honored to be a part of the Cottonwood Creek Elementary family! This is my 16th year in HISD and my fifth year @ the legendary CCE.
I look forward to working with you to ensure the success of your child!
