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, and a proud product of St Tammany Parish Schools. I attended Boyet Jr. High in Slidell for grades K-8 , and I graduated from Slidell High in 1984. I obtained a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education in 1990 and a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a gifted emphasis in 2011 from Southeastern Louisiana University. This is my 18th year of teaching and my 13th year teaching in the gifted program. I have taught gifted academics for ten of those thirteen 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.
