WELCOME TO OTIS BROWN ELEMENTARY

HELEN RIVERS

FAMILY

I was born and raised in Texas. I have lived all but two years in Texas. My family lived in Oregon and Idaho where my father was stationed in the Navy during these two years. I have 3 children, 14 grandchildren, and 28 great grandchildren. I moved to Irving in 1989 and have had a great experience here.


EXTRA ACTIVITIES

Being involved with children has been a truly wonderful experience. I was working in drill team, Little League Baseball, Fun Football with my 3 children. In 1990, I took on 3 of my grandchildren to raise. Since then we have spent 14 years in Girl Scouts (I was a leader), 12 years in Boy Scouts (again as a leader). Both of the grandsons became an Eagle Scout.


Hobbies

HOBBIES

Reading is a favorite pass time for me. I also do many different crafts. I have a collection of Owls, all kinds and all sizes. I have over 150 owls that the family have given me for holidays and some that I could not resist buying for myself.
