Current Position:

Previous Position:

I began my teaching career in 1993. I taught at Tatum Municipal Schools in Tatum, NM for 24 ½ years. I retired in 2016. For the next two years I worked as a long distance facilitator for White Horse Christian Academy, Stephenville, Texas. I had home-school students whom I monitored/facilitated two days a week for two years.


Family Information:

I have been blessed with four children and six grandchildren. My children graduated from Tatum High School, Tatum, New Mexico. John Edward Bland who lives in Turkey, Texas is a Texas Tech graduate. He is married to Christi Bland, and they have my two oldest grandsons. Barrett Bland is recent graduate of Oklahoma State University, and Jace Bland graduated from Cisco Junior College. Sarah Bland Collier lives in Ballinger, Texas, and attended Cochise Junior College and Tarleton State University. She has four children;two who attend Perrin ISD:  Karson Collier a senior and  Tatum Collier, a junior, Kannan Collier, seventh grade, and Traynor Collier, fifth grade, attend school in Ballinger. Rebekah Bland, a Texas Tech graduate,  is a teacher and coach at Perrin High School. Brooks Bland, who lives in Caddo, OK, is a Texas Tech graduate and married to Bobbie. I DO have a pet, a miniature Australian Shepherd, who goes by the name of Maggie.

Personal Information:

I was raised on the Muleshoe Ranch, established in 1913, in Borden County, Texas. I am the fourth generation, my children and grandchildren are the fifth and sixth generations to have lived and worked on the ranch. My children were raised in Lea County, New Mexico on a ranch my grandfather homesteaded in 1913, so they were the fourth generation to have lived and worked on that ranch. 

I enjoy watching my son and grandson, Jace, PRCA steer ropers, rope. Jace also participates in college rodeo, and I travel to watch him team rope. I enjoy watching all sports, particularly the ones my grandchildren are participants. I love Texas A&M football, basketball, and track!

I enjoy traveling and have been fortunate to be able to travel during the summers with my grandchildren. I was blessed to be able to work in Wyoming at Heart 6 Guest Ranch and Jackson Lake Lodge in Teton National Park  for six summers. Because of the relationships formed, my grandchildren are familiar with Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and Jackson Hole as we try to make it to Wyoming every summer for a few days.

Faith, family, friends...I am blessed to be able to do what I love to do.(Psalm 37:4)
