I joined the S-E facilty in 1981 and teach Pre-Kindergarten in Springlake-Earth Elementary. Four year olds are usually my favorite people in the world! The love a student has for the world in general, and for a teacher in particular, is what makes it a joy to come to school each day! I love teaching children to read, especially now with our new Saxon Phonics Program.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Texas Tech University with a specialization in Kindergarten and Day Care. I am married to David Carr, and our family includes Wesley, Amanda and her husband Jason Campbell. We have three precious grandchildren: three year old twins, Brenna and Stetson, and Reilly, born in August 2006. When not at school I love playing with my grandchildren, reading (favorite book--Montana Sky; favorite author: Stuart Wood and Suzanne Brockman), cooking (favorite foods: Pizza and Diet Coke), and watching movies (Coyote Ugly).
