I teach all levels of DSP mathematics. I also teach Math 1830 in the Math Department. I have been associated with Tennessee Tech since 1970 as either a student, employee, or parent of a TTU student [Heather (English '93) and Rachel (Accounting '04)].
I entered the teaching field in the footsteps of my grandmother (Leora Huddleston Allen), mother (Sue Allen Williams), and aunt (Lillian Robinson) all of whom taught in the Jackson County school system. You might say that teaching is hereditary!
My husband, Bruce, and I live east of Cookeville. Our "nest" is empty, but all 3 children live nearby. We have two grandchildren, Evann (14) and Grayson (12). We attend Boiling Springs Baptist Church and welcome you to join us there for worship. We enjoy fishing/boating in the warm months, and Bruce enjoys hunting during the winter. We were adopted by a Harley-Davidson 1200 Sportser Custom Fall 2003, but it lost its glamour when compared to my husband's REAL FIRST LOVE, so it was sold in Spring, 2006 to make room for a Pro Street Rod. How many of you have ever seen a 1948 Ford Anglia? Well, that love lasted 16 weeks and Bruce was seriously injured when he totaled the car--across the street in our neighbor's trees. But he has rallied and is back on both feet now. We now have a 1936 British Ford Y that is in the process of being restored and we look forward to going to car shows next year with it. We have a pet Shih Tzu, "Miss Cookie", and a herd of cattle on the farm. If you drive by the farm during the spring you will be treated to a glorious sight of dogwoods in bloom.
