## About Mrs. Kirby

Mrs. Kirby earned a B.S. degree in Computer Science with minors in both Mathematics and Statistics from Colorado State University in 1986. Upon graduation, she moved to Houston to work for NASA in the Missions Operations Directorate/Training Division as an Aerospace Technologist. She trained astronauts and flight controllers on the Shuttle’s communications systems, the Space Station’s command and data handling systems, and worked in the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory as a flight hardware coordinator.

During this time, she and her husband were youth pastors in La Marque, TX. In 2001, she resigned from NASA in order to help her husband as senior pastor and homeschool their three children. Their eldest child graduated from UT Dallas, and is currently working within the cyber security industry. Their middle child is currently a junior also at UT Dallas pursing a B.S. in Accounting, and the "baby" graduates high school this May with plans to pursue worship and civil engineering.

The Kirbys have a passion for mission work and have enjoyed serving on many short-term projects in Burma, Sri Lanka, Mexico and Nicaragua.

Mrs. Kirby enjoys teaching science and mathematics. In 2010, she accepted a position with a homeschool "school", much like HSML, as the Mathematics Department head and lead instructor. For the past nine years, her teaching has included middle and high school math classes (pre-algebra, algebra 1, geometry, algebra 2, pre-calculus and calculus), either in private tutoring, homeschooling, or classroom settings. Mrs. Kirby also instructs at the local junior college where she teaches both Beginning and Intermediate Algebra.
