MEET THE SOMMERS

We have both been in the education field for over 30 years. Judy has been an elementary classroom teacher, reading and language arts supervisor and an elementary school administrator. Hal has taught math at the middle school, high school, and adult education levels. In addition, Hal has been a middle and high school guidance counselor and a high school administrator. Upon leaving the public school setting Judy became a Marketing Manager for Steck Vaughn Publishing and later the General Manager for Raintree Steck Vaughn Library. Judy has also served as the Vice President of Marketing for The Wright Group and National Sales Manager for The Booksource. When Hal left education he became a sales rep for Steck Vaughn and later their technology trainer and exhibits manager. Hal has also worked for the Princeton Review. In 2002, we decided to move to back to Texas to be closer to our family (especially our grandchildren) and started an independent rep business selling library and technology products to the schools and public libraries in the North Texas area. We just love being in Texas and working with Texas educators.
