This is my fourth year with Fordyce Schools, but I have been teaching for 30 years. I grew up and spent most of my life in New Mexico. Between my wife and I, we have 6 children and 22 grandchildren. My wife is originally from Arkansas. It was a bit of a culture shock when I moved here, but I love the area. All our kids are grown so we replaced them with 5 cats, 2 dogs, and a cockatoo.
