Hi, I will be your child's gifted enrichment teacher this year; I look forward to working with both you and your child this upcoming school year. I am a native of Slidell as I have lived there almost my entire life. I am a product of St Tammany Schools. I attended Boyet Jr. High in Slidell for grades K-8 , and I graduated from Slidell High in 1984. I obtained a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education in 1990 from Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond; In 2011, I obtained a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a gifted emphasis from SLU as well. This is my 18th year of teaching and my 12th year teaching in the gifted program. I have taught gifted academics for ten of those twelve years at Clearwood Jr. High and Fifth Ward Jr. High. Additionally, I have experience teaching all subjects in grade levels 1-8 in various schools throughout St Tammany Parish.
My mission for the class is to provide a safe and nuturing classroom environment where gifted goals are addressed through challenging higher order learning activities and lessons.
