I was born in California, but moved to Albuquerque when I was seven. My mother was born here in 1921, but they left to CA, because the oil fields paid more than the work my grandpa did on the railroad here. My mom's side of the family had little education and were blue collar workers. My grandpa always taught me the value of working for the integrity within any system & standing up for those that lacked the opportunities that he had. My dad's side of the family fought hard to have an education. They believed that education was the key that would open the door of understanding & change. I have been a teacher for 32 years. I am a single mom with two wonderful daughters
(ages 24 & 22). We are all graduates of U.N.M.
Favorite Thing(s) About Albuquerque:
the accessibility of nature, the cottonwoods, the sunsets, the weather
What I'm Reading:
I just finished a book by Nancy Horan entitled Loving Frank. It is a fictional account based on non-fictional events of Frank Lloyd Wright's life. My favorite book is Love In the Time of Cholera. I gravitate toward Latino authors.
