Welcome to 1st grade! This is my 17th year teaching in St. Tammany Parish, and my 11th year teaching 1st grade at Madisonville Elementary. I am so happy to be a part of your child's educational journey.
I graduated from the University of New Orleans in 2000 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I have attended many valuable trainings through my years as an educator such as Kagan Structures, Project READ and Write from the Beginning. As recently as last summer, I attended a very inspiring Dyslexia conference.
My classroom utilizes a co-teaching model. Mrs. Lachney will spend about an hour in my room each day which means your child has the benefit of two teaching styles, more opportunities for small group instruction, remediation, enrichment and lots of movement. I will also have a year long resident student teacher from SLU, Ms. Conzenere, working alongside Mrs. Lachney and myself. I look forward to a very exciting year!
