Welcome to 5th Grade! I have been teaching here at Little Oak Middle for the past 24 years, and I teach Reading, ELA, and Social Studies. I graduated from LSU in Baton Rouge in 1994, and recieved a B.S. in Elementary Education. I have 3 beautiful children. Parker is 22, and attends LSU/FETI in Baton Rouge. Emily is 19, and attends LSU in Baton Rouge. Jack is 12, and is in seventh grade at Boyet Jr. High. I have also just recently become engaged to Brian Coe, who I have been with for the past five years. I am looking forward to a great year, and absolutely love my job. I believe the way to success in my classroom is for the student, the teacher, and the parents to work together to build both knowledge and character within the child!
