A series of books about my life, growing up in the hills of WV.
I am from rural Mingo County, WV. I have been married for 30 years to my best friend, and have raised two hard-working sons. Now, I have two beautiful daughter-in-laws, a precious grandson, and two granddaughters to be born in the spring of 2019. I have been in education for 28 years, having taught in various settings and grade levels in the public school system, the GED program, summer learning programs, and at the university level. I want to give encouragement to students who believe they cannot rise above poverty and other obstacles in their lives to achieve their dreams and beyond. This book series chronicles my journey to this point in my life.
