10-A THE BAYTOWN SUN Sunday, August 30. 1«H7 fMENSION Two teachers have lot in common By MISSY JOHNSTON For Edna Hindman of Baytown and Luanne Martin of Old River, graduating from Lamar University in Beaumont this summer was a great achievement. Both received degrees in education and have accepted teaching positions at Liberty School District for the 1987-88 school year. Mrs. Hindman will join the staff of Liberty Junior School as a volleyball and track coach and will work in the Liberty Elementary School as a special education teacher. Mrs Martin will work with emotionally disturbed children in the elementary school as a special education teacher. Although Mrs. Hindman and Mrs. Martin have a lot in common, their struggles for diplomas are unique. Mrs. Hindman began college 20 years ago at Tennessee Wesleyan College in Athens, Tenn. But her studies were interrupted by marriage, work and traveling with her family. Before moving to Baytown in 1985, she lived overseas for ten years in Saudia Arabia, Aruba and Libya. Her decision to go back to college was easy. "1 always wanted to teach all my life, and it was the right time for me to return to school economically," she said. To obtain her degree at Lamar, Mrs. Hindman commuted to. Beaumont (about 130-mile drive round trip) (or 20 months. During that time, the family built a new home and hosted a foreign exchange student from Norway. "The hardest thing was getting up at 5 a.m. to be at 7 a.m. classes during the summer," she said. "And I'm not a morning person." She said the most rewarding experience has been the EDNA HINDMAN LUANNE MARTIN rapport and support from fellow students, faculty and staff at Lamar. Mrs. Martin started working on her degree in 1983 at New Mexico Junior Community College, a 90-mile drive one-way from her previous home. In 1985, while carrying a full course load of 15 hours, Mrs. Martin took off from school for one week to have her youngest of four children. She transfered to Lamar University in 1986 and commuted for a year from Old River, about 60 miles away. The most trying thing for Mrs. Martin was finding time to study. "I would either have to study late at night when the children were asleep or set the alarm for 3 a.m. to study before classes," she said. Taking the graduation walk across the stage last Saturday wasn't just any ordinary event for Mrs. Hindman and Mrs. Martin. It was a step toward into the future, one that had been earned with patience, hard work and determination. SALE 1 EFFECTIVE' AUG.
