I graduated from Happy High school in 1990. I attended WTAMU and graduated with a bachelor of science teaching degree in 2003 and a master's in Instructional Design & Technology in 2013.
This current school year, 2022-2023, I started as the daycare director at Discovery Kids within Friona ISD, and in the mornings, I teach three-year-old special education.
I started teaching with Head Start in 2004 at Region 16. I continued working with Region 16 for 17 years. In 2021 I went to Dumas ISD and worked as a four-year-old Head Start teacher.
I am married to Ron Bye, and we have four wonderful children and one grandchild. My oldest, Dalton Bye, is 31 years old and living in Denton, Texas. he is a pilot and is currently completing his flight instructor certificate. He is working to become an airline pilot. Colton Bye is 29 years old and lives in Amarillo, Texas. He is married to Audry, and they have a 3-year-old named Ella. Colton is the manager of American Tire, and Audry will be a certified teacher in the summer of 2023. Dylan Bye is my next child; he is self-employed and is 27 years old. Finally, Jamee Bye is the only girl, and she is 24 years old and lives in Alabama. She works for the State of Florida department of children and families. She is a child protective investigator.
I love anything outdoors, including anything to do with water. I enjoy going to the beach, pool, or lake! Sunsets and sunrises are my favorite. I spend my time growing plants and enjoying spending time with my grandbaby Ella.
