I am a newly retired teacher, having taught almost 30 yrs in Austin ISD, AND a brand new "empty nester" and am looking forward to this amazing new chapter in life. I recently started my new business: Mind Blown Learning which offers tutoring, educational consulting and tech/science/math summer camps for kids. I have also been a performer in the Austin theatre scene for the past 30 years. Currently, I am the president of Zilker Theatre Productions, a non-profit organization which produces the beloved Zilker Summer Musical each year at the Beverly S. Sheffield Theater in iconic Zilker Park. (One of my pictures was taken on closing night of the 2013 production of Little Shop Of Horrors). I have 2 "children": a daughter who got married in January and a son who is a freshman at Texas Tech. I live on the best street in North Austin. I know my neighbors. I helped raise some of their children and they helped raise mine. We watch out for each other and keep track of neighborhood activities.
