My name is Mary Cushing. I have lived in St. Tammany for most of my life and I have one sister. My hobbies include: reading, visiting new places and cooking.
I am a graduate of St. Tammany Parish Schools and Southeastern Louisiana University. I have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education and this is my eighteenth year teaching.
My classroom goals for this school year are for the students to become more fluent readers. This goal is achieved by requiring a positive classroom environment. Also, the students will become "life-long" learners.
