I graduated from Detroit High School in 1970. I attended PJC for two years and graduated in 1972. I graduated from East Texas State University in Commerce in 1974 .
I earned a Bachelor of Art degree in Elementary Education with a Kindergarten endorsement.
I attended GT updates in the summer of 2018.
I started teaching at Detroit ISD in 1974. I taught for four years. In 1978 I had my first son and then two more sons. I did not teach for seven years. My second son and I started to Kindergarten together in 1985. This will be my 38th year to teach Kindergarten at Detroit.
All my teaching experience has been at Detroit in Kindergarten. I have taught VBS many years with this age group. I currently teach Sunday School and AWANAS for Kindergarten.
I am married to Jim Gatlin. We were married in 1974. We have three sons and five grandchildren. I have one grandson that attends Detroit Middle School and one grandson that is a Freshman at Detroit. My three sons graduated from Detroit also.
I enjoy reading and collecting children stories. I like to work jigsaw puzzles. I enjoy attending my grandchildren’s sporting and school events. I also like working with my church family.
