Debbie retired from LISD and Brown in May of 2013.  My status of reading at Brown has diminished though for the
2016-2017 school year, I read to Ms. Biciaga's 1st grade class on Thursday (or Friday), the same classroom that
Debbie had taught.  My plan is to read to Karter's class at Cooper North Elementary in October, 2017.

n most Tuesdays and Thursdays through the school year, I read to first graders, OR they read to me.  This was a result
of my wife, Deb, explaining through frustration, the school day she just experienced.  I asked her how I could help.  After
rejecting a few ideas, I asked her if coming on Tuesdays (after lunch with Ed, my Tuesday Ranch House eatin' partner)
to listen to her students was:
1. Permissible
b. Desired
After applying through Lubbock ISD online AND passing the background check, I started in 2010.  After retiring from
Texas Tech in 2011, I increased my visits to at least Tuesdays and Thursdays, based on the being in town on those days.

Of interest: the current principal, Staci Sumners, was a former student assistant I hired at Texas Tech while finishing
her bachelor degree.
