From 1975 to 1978 Mullens taught at Crosby High School and held the post of vocational adjustment coordinator.

BEAUMONT (AP) - As a teacher in Wisconsin, Jackie Guillory always knew where she could find supplies for her elementary school classes. "In Wisconsin, there are little teacher stores everywhere," Mrs. Guillory says. "They were little houses that were transformed into these nice little shops and you could get just about everything you needed there." A former teacher at St. Anne Tri-Parish School, Mrs. Guillory quit teaching about two years ago after the birth of her daughter. "1 tried to teach part time, but that just didn't work out with a baby who stayed awake all the time," Mrs. Guillory says. "I stayed home a year and felt like I needed something to do and I'd thought about opening a retail shop." A year of thought, along with support and guidance from her husband led to the School Stop. "I also called the store in Wisconsin where I used to shop to find out how to get started/' Mrs. Guillory says. "We did most of the work ourselves. I washed, scrubbed and painted the outside. We tore out walls and put walls up in different places and laid the carpet ourselves. About the only thing we didn't do ourselves was hav- ing the building leveled." The result turned into a brightly lit and colorful store where teachers and parents can purchase educational materials, including toys, workbooks, flashcards and computer software. The educational supply store, in a converted house, opened about 10 weeks ago. Teachers can also purchase books to help them prepare their students for the Texas Educational Assessment of Minimum Skills test which all high school seniors must pass to graduate, along with books to help prepare teachers for their appraisals. Mrs. Guillory also stocks religious teaching supplies. "Although I carry basic school supplies for students, it's really out of my reach to get specific for them, especially when so many other retail outlets exist," Mrs. Guillory says. "But we can meet specific needs for teachers, from classroom instructional materials to decorative materials." As a member of the Education Dealers and Suppliers Association International, Mrs. Guillory has access to over 1,000 dealers and suppliers from which she can order materials. "I also carry catalogs people can look through in case they need something I don't have," Mrs. Guillorv savs. "If I don't FALL REGISTRATION Leslie School of Dancing August 20-21 9:30 am-6:30 pm Tap* Ballet* Jazz Acrobatic* Baton Children & Adults Worting Mother's Classes Available 422-7722 3117 Hwy 146 BAYTOWN EYE CENTER Dr, James G, McKinnon cwd sta// will continue to deliver quality eye care at the same location in Gulf Coast Hospital 2800 Garth Rd., Suite A that we have occupied /or the past 16 years. • Routine eye exams /or glasses • Cataract surgery at "NO COST" /or medicare patients (including limousine service to & /rom hospital. • Contact lenses. • Radial Keratotomy, • Laser surgery • Emergency care (day or night).

In addition to educational materials, Mrs. Guillory also teaches art classes for 5-, 6-, and 7-year-old children in her shop.
