Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!! This year our schoolwide theme is "Extreme Makeover Pine View Edition" We have lots of new faces while continuing our same commitment of excellence.
I am excited to be your child's ELA and Social Studies teacher and am looking forward to a positive, fun-filled year of learning and adventure. I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University in 1987 with a degree in Elementary Education with certification in grades 1st-8th. I received my masters from University of New Orleans in 1991 in Curriculum and Instruction with a minor in special education. I am also a certified reading specialist. As you can tell I love studying and reading. I have been teaching for 31 years and this is my 16th year at Pine View Middle School. I consider it a blessing to be an educator and am honored to work with our future generation of leaders.
I hope everyone had a restful and blessed Thanksgiving Holiday. Now is the time to get focused and finish the second nine weeks strong! Our last day before Christmas break is December 21st. We will be finishing our Guide Book Unit on the American Revolution. The students are working on an inclass research project.
