Looking back on my life, choosing education makes sense.  Taking it day by day, and given my first career choice was to move to New York to become a well known fashion designer. I am not surprised that, twenty-five years later I will end my career teaching high school.  Let me explain.

I grew up in Texas - raised by a father who believed in taking care of his family and a mother who believed that education was the most important aspect of life.  She was very in-tuned into her two girls' lives.  It appeared that we had enough money considering we always had food and clothing until one day my mother recognized that I was extremely hungry, when I returned home from school each day. She began to ask questions.  Here is when she found out that I was giving my bag lunch and sometimes my lunch money to kids at school that didn't have what I thought we had.  When she told my Dad what I had been doing, they laughed about how hard they were working to keep up and here I was giving away my lunch and money to the needy, when we too were the needy.
