Welcome to My Website!

This will be my 44th year of teaching. (Yes, you read that correctly) I retired but am still teaching part-time. I teach World History elective (HS credit).  Prior to coming to Sunnyvale, I taught for 6 years at Dallas Christian High School.  I graduated from Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas with a Master's degree in Political Science. My childhood home was located in Lake City, Arkansas.  My best guy is Wills Jae Kensington, IV, and he is a Labradoodle.  I absolutely love football: the Arkansas Razorbacks, the Dallas Cowboys, and, of course, the Raiders.  I like to read, work crossword puzzles, work on genealogy, and watch mystery-style movies. My favorite president is Ronald Reagan.  I still miss him.  My all-time favorite television show is Cheers.  My favorite authors are Sue Grafton and John Grisham. My mother was a school teacher for many years in Arkansas and she actually taught John Grisham's daddy.  That's about the only claim to fame that I've got but I'm working on becoming a star in Hollywood someday when they express a need for older, wiser, larger-size ladies to star in big-budget productions. I have been teaching so long that now many of my former kids are here with me, teaching alongside me.  Life is good.  I thank the good Lord for helping me find my way to Sunnyvale and giving me such a wonderful career.  Kids are the best thing in the world (well, in a tie with chocolate).
