  • Third Grade Academically Gifted Resource Teacher

    I am the third grade academic gifted resource teacher at Lancaster Elementary. I teach ELA and math. I have been here at Lancaster since we opened the doors. I was  the academic gifted teacher at Madisonville Elementary prior to teaching at Lancaster.  I enjoy teaching the academic gifted students at our school. It has been my pleasure to be part of their educational journey. It has afforded me many enjoyable teaching experiences of a truly unique and rewarding nature. I have felt honored to know and teach these  exceptional students in St. Tammany Parish for over fifteen years. I have watched the academic gifted program in our parish develop over the past thirty years and the transformation has been truly amazing. Our administration is very supportive and our teachers here are all fabulous. Our Lancaster theme" Only Happy Campers Here- Where Learning is an Adventure" will prove to be fun, rigorous, and exciting! I am looking forward to the 2017-18 year at Lancaster Elementary.
