Mary Shannon MacMichael (’76)

Mary gives a life update:

Graduating in 1976 first job was as a Physical Education instructor with the Houston Independent School District at the Roberts Elementary Magnet School. I was hired with 3 other young Phys.Ed. teachers Pat Sutton, Tom Brewer and Andre Hornsby and supervised by our experienced coordinating teacher, Marion Kirk. I taught for 3 years at Roberts and then worked with my best friend, Valerie (Schneider) Reis, UH ’76, in the Alief Independent School District. Marriage came along in 1980, baby girl in 1981 and moved to Roanoke, VA in 1984. Full time wife and mother occupied most of my time as well as substitute teaching and part time youth work! Covenant Presbyterian hired me for what was to be a 2 year term as Youth Director/Church Activities Director, as my husband returned to school. That 2 years turned into a total of 31 at the Church and I retired in 2016. After my husband retired in 2017 we moved to Mentone, Alabama to be near our only daughter, her husband and our granddaughter and to become involved community members in this beautiful area of the country.
