She grew up in North Dakota and moved to Texas when she was 19. Becoming an Art teacher has been a dream come true for her.

In the words of Mrs. Carlin "there is nothing more rewarding than seeing the concentration, the joy and the sense of accomplishment and pride in my students. What's not to love?"
