Teaching is a passion.   As a child I always enjoyed playing school with my dolls:  Barbie and Ken.  During my freshman year,  I tutored students in Algebra I.   This tutoring led to my career as an educator.   

I am married to Heiskell Winstead Jr.   Jr. manages our farm and rental properties.   We have two sons:  Drake and Grayson.  Drake is 22 years old and recently graduated from ETSU with a degree in Biology.   Drake plans to further his career in the medical field.   Grayson is 21 and works for our family farm raising Limousine Beef Cattle and Akbash Dogs.   My third child is a Brussels Griffon named Max.  He is ten  years old.   I also have three Black Tipped Reef Sharks and a Piranha.  My grandchild is a Pink-toed tarantula named Spidey.  My hobbies include: cooking  ( I want to be Paula Deen), traveling, and spending time on our houseboat.
