I want to give special thanks to my mom who made such an impact in my life and education. Other than giving me life, the next most important thing my mom did was read to me. When I was young, she read me stories and that thelped me become a better reader. It helped me have a strong vocabulary. She worked full time and still found a way to feed me and read to me most days of the week. It didn't end when I grew up either. When I was sick in middle school, my mom sat and read my nightly reading to me one night while she nursed me back to health so I'd be ready for a quiz. That's the kind of woman she is and I'll always appreciate her for that.
She's a DISD grad by the way. Our district produces some quality people and has been for decades.
