I am so pleased to here in Ben Bolt. My best years in education have been at smaller schools. I am from Corpus Christi but I lived in Mexico City almost 10 years where I studied Anthropology and Spanish. I completed college and university in San Francisco where I graduated with a B. A. I lived and worked with Hispanics ( mostly Central Americans ) for another 10 years teaching English to adults. At the same time I was teaching Spanish to children at a private school. I returned to Texas to study Science and get a teaching degree. I have lived in Corpus Christi since 1984 and enjoy sailing, playing guitar and travel.
