  • I am certified as a Supervisor of Instruction and hold a Doctoral Degree in Administration. Currently, I am the Principal of Bonne Ecole Elementary, which is a prekindergarten through sixth grade school. I have held this position since 2007. Prior to 2007, I was the Assistant Principal at Florida Avenue Elementary for two years, during which I spent one semester as the Interim-Principal. After teaching in Mississippi for eight years, I moved to Louisiana in 2001, when I accepted a position at Bonne Ecole Elementary.


    I have enjoyed many accomplishments throughout my eleven years as an administrator. In 2011, I was named Louisiana Region 2 Elementary Principal of the Year. I was also named LACUE State Leader Educator in 2013. During my time as Principal, Bonne Ecole was named a Top Gains School in 2012 and 2016 and an “A” School for the 2012-2013 and 2015-2016 school years. Bonne Ecole is repeatedly a High Performing School in the district, which is attributed to the strive for excellence that is embedded in our culture. Bonne Ecole Elementary is also home of the Teacher of the Year 2012 and 2016 and the Student of the Year 2009 and 2010.

    Bonne Ecole is a wonderful school and I look forward to continue to serve the school for many more years
