A very dear friend asked Loretta, "When are you going to write a novel and make some real money? You have some great ideas." Her answer for now is this: “There is great joy in what I do.” One day she hopes to write a novel, but today she is a poet and music teacher at Reagan Elementary in Odessa, Texas. She graduated from Ector High School, received a Bachelor of Music Education degree from Texas Tech University and earned a Master's of Elementary Education from the University of Texas at the Permian Basin.
Loretta is active in her community through membership in organizations such as Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Texas Music Educators Association, and the Permian Basin Poetry Society. She is also a member of the Poetry Society of Texas, the Pennsylvania Poetry Society, Abilene Writer's Guild, the National Federation of Poetry Societies, and the Texas Mountain Trail Writers.
Loretta believes kindness is a language in and of itself, and she hopes to speak it fluently. She also believes when children speak, listen. There are treasures in the syntax of their innocence.
