A little bit about me..... I graduated from Midway High School and then went to MCC, where I received my associates degree. I then transferred to UTSA in San Antonio, where I received my Bachelors Degree in Health Education with a minor in Mathematics. I am married and have 2 children. My husband, Charlie, is retired but takes care of the the athletic complexes in the Midway ISD. My children both graduated from Lorena High School. My son, Chase graduated from Texas State University and is now a teacher/coach in the Katy ISD school district. He is married and now we have a wonderful daughter in law, Becca. They are expecting a baby girl in December. I will be a grandmother!! My daughter, Carly graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and is also a teacher/coach in the Katy ISD school district.
