I graduated from The University of North Texas in 1996 with a 3.87 GPA. I have a BS in Education and a minor in math. But I wasn't always this "scholarly." After graduating from Grand Prairie High in 1989, I was sent to UT Arlington (not my first choice - it was a boy issue...). I failed miserably (I had a 1 point something GPA!) because for one, I didn't EVEN want to be there, and secondly, I was having too much fun to think about class! I took a year off from school. Mom said if I wanted to go back, I had to pay for it. Got some lame job at a health insurance company and made $5/hr. It was a no-brainer. Realizing I couldn't live on my own making that kind of money and not having an education, I decided to go back to school...night school. I took in nice and slow and proved to myself that I was still pretty smart and could handle it. Finished up my basics at Northlake Jr. College and moved on to the Mean Green! Did so darn well that I was on the Dean's List for 3 semesters and the President's List for one semester; became a member of Alpha Chi National College Honor Scholarship Society and Golden Key National Honor Society. I made my momma and myself very proud. =) I have been teaching 7th grade math ever since (20 years).
