She taught at Columbia University, the University of Alabama, Sul Ross State University and Our Lady of the Lake.  She was the author of a number of texts in English, Mathematics, History, and Reading.  She also served as an officer in a long list of civic organizations in education, health and culture.  Her name is well-known in education and lay circles as she exhibited that kind of professional expertise which brought honor to her profession and that kind of personal ladyship and understanding which made her a friend to every schoolchild and every parent.
