About Bob

I attended Wharton Junor College from 1964-1966, with a liberal arts major. I transferred to Lamar Tech in 1966 and began a major in business with an economic minor. The college was across the highway from a plant which produced hydrogen sulfide, a gas that smells like rotten eggs. I didn't like Beaumont and I transferred to Sam Houston in 1967. I graduated in 1968. However, I joined the Navy in March of 1969 and was unable to attend the graduation ceremony. They only held it once a year and I was in the Navy when it happened.

After leaving the navy in 1973, I returned to Sam Houston to major in elementary ed. with a psychology minor. I received my teaching certificate in 1974 and completed most of my graduate work in 1975. I started teaching 4th grade at North Forest ISD north of Houston. I was placed in the reading lab after 3 years in 4th and stayed there for 2 years. In 1980, I moved to Conroe and taught 1 year with special ed 5th graders before leaving teaching.

I worked for Montgomery Co. Health Dept for 3 years as an environmental sanitarian with a license. I moved to Florida in 1984 getting a short-lived job in a private school with 4 students. I returned to Houston 5 months later and for 3 years did substitute teaching and septic system soil percolation tests. I moved to Houston in 1988 and for 6 years did temporary office work. In 1994, I was hired by the Tex. food stamp office in Galveston, Houston, and San Antonio. A mysterious illness forced me to quit the dept.in 1998 and for the next 5 years I did temporary office work, collection dept. clerical work, and even worked for my band/dance teacher doing construction work. In 2003 I returned to teaching as an elementary substitute teacher for Northside ISD. In 2004 I was hired as a PE instructional assistant and did that for 2 years. In 2006 I returned as a substitute teacher for Northside ISD and eventually North East ISD and Judson school districts to this day.

I have been a piano player/electronic keyboardist since 1960. I was in a dance band at my church in Houston, a praise and worship band in my church in San Antonio, and a latin/swing dance band here in San Antonio. I have extensive dance experience, having taking lessons for several years. I even was a volunteer dance instructor for Salon Mexico for a while. I am proficient in most of the latin dances, swing, and waltz.

For 2 seasons, I worked with my church track and field team in Houston. In 1997-about 2000 I was trained by a certified track and field coach in the 100 and 200 meters and ran in the Senior Olympics in 1998 and 2001. In 2001, I won a bronze metal in the 100 meters and a silver metal in the 200 meters. I've tried every track and field event except the hammer throw and the steeplechase. I ran the Houston marathon in 1980 finishing with a time of 3:13 minutes. I raced on the Houston long distance circuit for several years. I have several trophies in the 5k run in Conroe for several years.

At present, and for the last 3 years, I have been a an elementary substitute teacher grades 1-4, art, music, and physical education. I was married for the first time in 2007. My wife retired as an elementary kindergarten teacher from Northeast ISD in 2009 and we have been substitute teachers ever since.
