I've been in the industry for 40 years. I started as a hairdresser and then,
went back to school to get my Instructor license. After receiving my
instructor license I taught in a private school for 6 years and 3 years at a
Junior College, then I found a career with the Texas Cosmetology
Commission and became an inspector for salons. I worked with the
state for 5 years and that's when a teacher at Dale Jackson contacted
me about a position for a Cosmetology Teacher at DJCC and that is when my career
began 10 years ago as a teacher in a public school.
It has been a fun exciting career. The best part is the constant change and growth.
No two days are the same and no two customers are the same.
At DJCC we do our best to keep up with the changes and update our program
to keep classes current.
Seeing a student learn and grow gives me a great feeling of accomplishment.
At DJCC we are goal oriented and help students realize their dreams of working
in the cosmetology industry.
My success is only that of what my students achieve. My goals for the program
is to help them develop entry level skills, demonstrate the ability to
perform TDLR applications, develop professional attitudes and leadership
skills according to industry standard, understand the importance of safety
and sanitation in our industry, obtain required hours to take the state exam
and most importantly become productive and responsible citizens.
For every hug and smile I receive from a student lets me know that I'm where
I need to be in this career.
