     I would like to take this ooportunity to welcome you and your student to a new year at Abney Elementary School. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your student throughout the year, which surely promises to bring with it many new experiences.


    I was born and raised in Albany, Georgia and have been in Slidell for 29 years. I completed the Alternate Teacher's Certification Program in 2004 from Southeastern Louisiana University. I also earned my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Phoenix and thirty additional hours in Special Education from Southeastern Louisiana University.


    Also in the classroom are Mrs. Dee Ann Hebert who has over 20 years experience as a paraeducator and Mrs. Niki Newell who has over five years experience and was in law enforcement previously.
