About Me

I've been told I must enter a profile. So here it is. I am a middle aged American woman. I am married, I have three grown kids, I teach high school. I am politically well read and I write ALOT. I don't mind debating an idea, but having recently been harassed on another site, I won't tolerate abuse. I consider myself politically conservative, I am active politically, but I don't necessarily vote a straight ticket. I live in Texas, was born in Texas and I value my historic Texas roots. I think this is enough, don't you?

Activities

I teach, therefore the rest of the year I rest. Right now I am buried in grading and trying to finalize my AP syllabus for submission to College Board

Art, music, mysteries, writing, travel, surviving this crappy economic hand we have been dealt.
