I grew up in Jayton and graduated from JHS in 1979. After that I attended Angelo State University. I graduated from there in 1983 with a B.S. degree in Elementary Education. I taught for 7 years in Goldsmith, TX and 7 years in Odessa, TX before returning home in 1998 to care for my parents.
I went to work for JGISD in 2008. I am currently a Special Education teacher in the morning and the Pk-3 music teacher in the afternoon.
I am married to Glen Cherry. He is employed with Centurion Pipeline in Snyder.
I have 3 step sons and 7 grandchildren. My favorite hobby is my animals which consists of dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, cows, and goats.
