About Me

I am a certified Texas teacher and Texas peace officer. I have  an A.A. in Law Enforcement from San Jacinto College, a diploma from the Houston Police Academy, a B.A. in History, Literature, and Education from Univ of Houston/Clear Lake, a M.A. in History, Literature, and Philosophy from California State University, and a diploma from Liberty University Bible Institute. 

I publish my background  to offer my qualifications on opinions I share. I have many years of experience on the streets of Houston and the classrooms of Harris County. It does not make me any “smarter,” it just means I have not simply gone to the University of Facebook Memes.
