Please describe your appreciation for the City of Austin's diverse demographics and geography. As a STEM teacher, I was amazed how effective the impact of such education reached the students who regarded no value of traditional education. Inspiring is my appreciation of the future for these students. Diversity, I believe, is a paramount determination of diversity, privilege, support, and competent leadership, even adversity. As a Real Estate advisor, I understand the geography of Austin and confidently may explain the effects of such in all cardinal directions, including weather conditions, soil movement/foundation effects, and our city's inclusion in LCRA, its effect, purpose, etc... Exctint volcanoes in Texas are simply amazing; my fascination with Central Texas landed me here a short distance away from Houston. From the gateway to the hill country to the coastal plains, geographically, determined boundaries and or districts are exceptionally important to establish for many reasons.
Please provide your employment history. My employment from age 13 has led me through numerous experiences and afforded the opportunity to experience every personality, numerous challenges, novel opportunities to learn new skills and exercise them, learn to be an intent life long learner, and appreciate the opportunity to serve my family and community. I serve the Norwood Park Foundation as the secretary and principle grounds committee, organize local events such as the Family Elder Care fan driver yearly, personally organize yearly Its My Park Day and National Parkland.
