• Welcome to 5th Grade! I have been teaching here at Little Oak Middle for 23 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 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! I am looking forward to meeting everyone at Open House!
