I married a New Yorker and have been married for 45 years. When we got married, we moved to Long Island, New York and after four and a half years, we decided Texas was where we belonged. We returned to Texas in November 1974 and lived in Corpus Christi, Texas until 1986. We moved to the Dallas/Ft.Worth area and have been living here for 29 years. I have a son, a daughter, a son-in-law, a daughter-in-law, a marvelous grandson and an amazing granddaughter. I also have three sisters, two brothers-in-law, two nephews, and one niece. I am a certified Bilingual/ESL (English as a Second Language) Teacher with a Master's Degree in Spanish Literature and a Mid-Level Management Certification. I worked in a school district as a Monolingual, Bilingual and ESL Teacher. After I left the classroom, I managed the Bilingual ESL Enrollment Services Center and also held the position as the District's Migrant Facilitator. As a facilitator, I worked advocating services for our Migrant Families and students. I am now retired and enjoying my family. This is my first book but hopefully not my last.
