Toni Baxter

Bremond, Texas

Toni attended Texas A&M University, but ultimately received a degree in English Education from the University of Houston in 1977. Soon after, she and her husband, Buddy, moved to Odessa, Texas, where he practiced dentistry for thirty-six years. Toni taught English Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate classes for many of those years at Odessa High School. During that time, she completed a master’s degree in English from The University of Texas Permian Basin.

For the last seven years of her teaching career, she worked for The Institute for Public School Initiatives at The University of Texas, spending time in schools and working with teachers who were part of a federal literacy grant. During that time, she and her husband moved back to Toni’s hometown of Bremond to be closer to trees, water, and their children. Toni is working in their dental office, getting re­acquainted with old friends and making new ones.

She spends her free time with her three children and six grandchildren. She enjoys working in the garden, reading, cooking, hiking, and occasionally sailing. In 2015, she achieved her goal to become an Aggie graduate. She now holds a master’s degree in Education-Public School Administration and finally has her Aggie ring!
