Yes, the name sounds Vietnamese, but Trang is also a Norwegian name. Go figure. I have been teaching since 1983. My husband was in the Army for 22 years, so I have taught in many different states and at many different levels (from 6th grade all the way to college level courses). My husband Jeff is a former Army test pilot, but is now working for Eurocopter.
Our son Allen is a graduate of Trinity University and also works at Eurocopter as an analyst. Our daughter Amy is a Marine Biologist. She graduated in May 2012 from Texas A&M and hopes to work at a zoo or an aquarium.
My B.A. is from the University of Colorado and my M.A. is from Texas A&M University. I have 24 credit hours toward a Ph.D. at the University of North Texas. I am always trying to stay abreast of the latest in the field of English, rhetoric, and composition.
We have three English Springer Spaniels (Nikki, Knickknack, and Paddywhack). Two of them we adopted from a rescue organization. At first we fostered them, but I got so attached them them that I couldn't let them go. We also have three cats: Dexter, Neville, and Indi. I love animals. And kids.
When I am not grading papers, I love to hang out with my family, read, write, garden, cook, go to movies, hike , go on road trips, and put web pages together (just kidding!). I also volunteer at the Humane Society in Keller. If you need a cat or dog, and I'm sure you do, go there! We have some adorable animals waiting for families.
I am the Department Chair of English, UIL Ready Writing coach, and the Senior class sponsor. Prom is going to ROCK this year!!!!
