About Mrs. Killough
I've been teaching for 14 years, 9 of those at Flower Mound High School. My husband is a coach in the district so we stay pretty busy during the year between our schedules and juggling our 4 yr old twins. When I'm not working you can find me either watching a documentary, reading about history or traveling to a cooler destination.
I am an avid nature observer, camper, hiker and all around lover of the outdoors. When I'm not working I'm usually trying to find my way to a campsite, a river, or a mountain.

Geo-literacy can reduce the costs of bad decision-making and provide the foundation for positive breakthroughs
