Current Position:

I'm currently teaching Resourch English 1. 2. 3. & 4.  In past years, I have also taught Journalism, Yearbook, Newspaper, Photography, Professional Communications (speech) & English 2 .  I also used to supervise the Credit Recovery lab.  I'm beginning my 12th year at Levelland High School.  I am proud of all the district, regional, state, and national awards my publication staffs and I have earned in Yearbook and Journalism over the years.  A highlight was when a student advanced to the state UIL Academic Meet; she was the first student at LHS to do so since 1982.

 

Previous Position:

This is my 12th year at Levelland High School.  I have taught at Estacado High School (7 years), Hale Center, Seagraves, and Pampa.  I taught Yearbook, Newspaper, and Journalism at all of the schools except Hale Center (where I taught 7th and 8th grade writing).

Family Information:

I have a 25 year old daughter,  a 25 year old step-daughter and a 27 year old step-son.  I'm excited to be a grandmother to baby Aiden and a step-grandmom to three-year-old Cody.  I have two irritating black cats. I enjoy swimming, TV, movies, and travelling. I have been busy helping my husband, David Buckner, in his fight against cancer that ended recently when he passed away.

Personal Information:

I enjoy travelling, camping, going to movies/musicals/plays, reading, playing on computers, and reading.  In addition to teaching, I am a photographer. I photograph a variety of subjects including nature, scenery, wildlife, and people.  Often I photograph them just for myself or for the body of work I'll leave behind someday and get famous for (LOL).  Sometimes, I take a job doing outdoor portraits for seniors, babies, engagements, etc.  Years ago, I was the professional photographer for WTA&M University and a reporter/photographer for The Denver City Press newspaper.
