I grew up in Texas as far south as you can go. I studied Spanish and Art at Texas A&I in Kingsville that is now Texas A&M in Kingsville. I began teaching art and Spanish in Gregory Portland High School. After that got married and moved to Mexico City for 7 years and 3 years in Monterrey, Mexico. Came back to the United States and taught in McAllen, Texas for 20 years. I resently moved to the area and was very fortunately to get a job teaching Spanish at Pearl River High School.
