In August of 1963, I graduated from Phillips and began my teaching career in Harper, Kansas. Unfortunately it was with high school students and I learned very quickly that I did not like them. The next year I moved to Wichita and beagan teaching middle school in Haysville. I spent 6 years there and in 1970 Ron’s company moved us to Dallas. Since then we have lived in the Dallas Metroplex in numerous places.
I married Ronald Rylander (class of ’59) in 1964. We have one daughter, Jennifer, and 2 grandchildren.
In 2004 I decided it would be more fun to play with grandbabies than to teach, so I retired. At that point we moved from Grapevine to Aubrey, Tx.(beautiful horse ranch country).
For the last 20 years I have been working with a partner doing “teacher training” …the state of Texas requires that all teachers have training in how to teach Gifted and Talented students..that is the training that we provide. It keeps me busy and I enjoy the time spent with other teachers.
