Welcome back to Mandeville High for your SENIOR YEAR, Skippers! I am thrilled to be one of your guides in this exciting chapter of your lives.
I am Tracie Hymel, and while this is my fifth year teaching seniors here at Mandeville High, it is my nineteenth year of teaching English. I earned a bachelor's degree in sociology from Loyola University, then received teacher certification from Our Lady of Holy Cross College, and finally got my master's in Educational Leadership from Southeastern Louisiana University. Not only am I passionate about my profession and the people I get to meet because of it, I am most inspired by my two children, ages 8 and 10, my husband, and our families. I am grateful to be able to do a job I love because it allows me to have a positive outlook and a happy life.
As a teacher, I do all that I can to help my students succeed. I look forward to developing working relationships with my students and their families this year, as we finish up this high school chapter of your lives.
