    About Me
    I was born in Corpus Christi, moved in 3rd grade, lived  in Georgia and South Carolina and returned to Texas when I started 8th grade. We moved to Beaumont for my dad's job and I lived there until we moved to the Alvin area.  I have been married to William Withers for more than 35 years, and we were blessed with two children, now grown. Travis is a manager at Five Guys in Houston and Kathleen just recently graduated from college in Business and also earned her pilot license.
    After graduating high school I put myself through college at Lamar University and received my Bachelor's and Master's Degree.
     Gardening, cooking, reading, bird watching, playing with my dog, Hurley are some of my favorite hobbies.  I am dabbling in painting and crafting, also.

     A new hobbby is growing bonsais.  These tiny trees are a challenge to grow and a joy to see my success.  Success or failure, I am always learning.

     I have always enjoyed reading and am passionate about helping struggling readers and writers find their voice.
