About the Author
About the Author My childhood experiences revolve around a small southwestern Georgia town. Upon college graduation, I taught high school science and mathematics in Alabama and Ohio. After four years, I left teaching and entered the railroad industry (ASAB Railway, Dothan, AL). Having advanced to Superintendent of Car Services, I remained a dutiful employer for eleven years. This venture led me to my soul mate. In 1984, my husband and I settled in Panama City, Florida. At that time, I reentered the education field (Bay District Schools), where the experiences from my railroad career provided exceptional classroom/real-world connections. In 2000, I became a resource teacher with Beacon Educator and worked with teachers throughout the state of Florida until retirement in 2008. Today, my husband and I reside in Panama City Beach, Florida, enjoying retirement, playing golf and traveling as often as possible. This year we celebrated twenty-five years of wonderful marriage.
