Comments:

Attended Austin College, then graduated from UT in Austin. Hired by Spring Branch ISD to teach 5th grade in 1972. Moved to Houston to Woodway Square apts in August. In September, 72, Mike moved into an apt. across the patio. Our telephone wires got crossed (ala Pillow Talk), we met finally in person, dated and were married in June, 1973. He still says he has a lawsuit pending with Southwestern Bell.

Switched to Cypress Fairbanks to be closer to home. Got my Masters in 1989 and have been a librarian at the school where Linda Williams (Ball) teaches kindergarten. I can truthfully say that after 36 years in education, I still love watching kids learn...HATE the testing mess.

Retired after 39 years in education in 2011.

School Story:

We had a great high school career! Looking through the year book brought back many memories of fun times just being together with friends.

Welcome! Glad to have you join the group. You will always be a senior class of 68...we don't get older in our minds, right? BUT we are all turning 65. I remember when that was ancient...no NOT so much.
