Welcome to Mrs. Buchanan's Class! I am so excited to be teaching your child this year where we are SWAMPED WITH GREAT LEARNERS! I have been teaching for 22 years, 21 years in the classroom and this past year in the library. Yes, I am back in the classroom and I am so excited! A little bit about myself. I am married with two boys. Jack is 13 and is attending high school in New Orleans this year. Lucas is 12 and is in the sixth grade at LOM. My husband, Brett, and I are very busy being parents to two active boys. You'll often see us at the soccer field or at the tennis courts watching our boys doing what they love. I went to LSU and UNO for my undergraduate degree. I also received my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from UNO. I am a huge LSU and Saints fan.
My goal as a teacher is to create a classroom community where students love coming to school in a safe and happy environment. I teach my students that my class is "family" and that we should support our classmates, encourage each other to do their best, and be there for each other each and every day.
I am also looking forward to meeting and working with my students' parents this year. As a team I know that we can make this year one of the best school years ever!
