In the beginning years when I first began teaching, I worked in St. Bernard Parish for the Archdiocese of New Orleans and in Jefferson Parish before finding a home in St. Tammany Parish Schools. During these years, I obtained a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction Leadership and a +30 in Administration.
For the last 23 years of my career in education, I have been a teacher and an administrator in St. Tammany Parish School System. In 1994, I was given the task of guiding the first English department at the newest high school in the district, Fontainebleau High School. From there, I moved to Northshore High School where I found a home with the Panthers for the next eight years. In 2004, a new and exciting program was created called the Parish-Wide Assistant Principal program, and I had the honor of being one of the inaugural participants in the program. When Katrina hit in 2005, I was working as a parish-wide assistant principal at my first home in St. Tammany, Fontainebleau High School at that time I was assigned to Clearwood Junior High School as the acting assistant principal. The rest is history as I found a new home as a Clearwood cougar! My last 13 years have been filled with challenges, changes, fun, and friendships all of which have forged us into a family here at Clearwood.
Our school family looks forward to forming many new alliances with the parents who entrust their students to our care. We look to the future as we work to educate and inspire the next generation to be the best they can be, knowing that we have given them the tools necessary for their success in an ever changing world.
