School Story:

I received a Bachelor of Science Degree from Eastern New Mexico University in 1969. I taught and coached 4 years in Roswell at Mountain View Middle School. I received a graduate assistantship to obtain my Master's Degree from Eastern New Mexico University which I received in 1975. I taught English and was head girls Track Coach at Amarillo High School. I actually began the girl's track program at Amarillo High School. Next I taught Physical Education and coached at Plano Haggard Middle School 1975-1976. I retired to start our family and was a homemaker for 18 years, substitute taught some. I was blessed with three sons and did substitute teaching in Bailey, Colorado and volunteer work in the schools in Lubbock, Texas. In 1994 I went to work for Texas Tech UIL and worked there for 4 years as an assistant director to the Region 5 UIL Director. From 1998-2003 I taught and coached at OL Slaton Middle School in Lubbock, TX. From 2003-2012 I taught at a Juvenile Justice Alternative School in Lubbock TX. As a second job, in the evening and on weekends, from 2008 to 2011 I worked at Target in Lubbock as an Operator and Fitting Room Manager. Chuck passed away March 29, 2010. We were married 36 years, one month, and one week. HE WAS THE LOVE OF MY LIFE!! I am now retired from teaching, coaching, and Target. I live with my son, Matthew, his wife, Tabitha, and their 4 kids, my grandkids. I am a Christian missionary, working with refugees who come to the Dallas area from all over the world. We mentor them, teach them English, help them apply for a job, aid them in interviews for jobs, and hopefully, with prayer, lead them to accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior and Lord.

I am so saddened to hear of Terry Miller's passing.  He was such a wonderful guy!  I am praying for his family to be comforted during this time, his wife, children and great grandchildren. MAY THE LORD SURROUND THEM WITH HIS LOVE AND COMFORT!!!
