    Welcome!  I am looking forward to a wonderful year of exploration, inspiration, and challenges.  Ken Venturi eloquently expressed my philosophy, “I don’t believe you have to be better than everybody else.  I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be.”

    I graduated from LSU with a Bachelor’s in Interior Design.  A few years later, I earned a Master’s in Elementary Education with a Gifted Specialization. This will be my 29th year teaching.  I have been teaching gifted students for 21 years. 

    This year will begin with the 2nd and 3rd grade enrichment students exploring Pioneers, Westward Expansion, and Native Americans.  Expect exciting adventures as the wagon trains head west toward Oregon.  The 1st grade gifted students will begin the year researching animals.  They will use this information to create and run a zoo.
