I have been a teacher at Riverside Elementary since 2000. During my years at Riverside I have taught second grade, been Riverside's librarian, and currently teach 5th grade. I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University with a Bachelor's of Elementary Education. Throughout my teaching career I have continued my education and have two Master's of Education. I have a Master's in Elementary Teaching and Educational Leadership from Southeastern Louisiana University.
As an educator, it is my goal to promote a postive and safe learning environment for each student in my class. Education involves the student, family, school, and community working together to promote respect, responsibility, and self-discipline in order for each student to become an independent lifelong learner.
