They lived in Houston, College Station, and then Thibodaux, Louisiana, where Dorothy graduated from Nichols State University as valedictorian in 1965. The Zuckero family moved back to Houston in 1965, where Dorothy taught first and second grades for 22 years until her retirement. Dorothy was a talented seamstress. She made most of her daughter's clothes, and even her wedding dress.
