Welcome to the 2017-2018 School year at Folsom Junior High School.
I would like to begin by introducing myself. My name is Taura Blanc. I was born in Slidell, Louisiana, and I am a proud graduate of St. Tammany Parish Schools. I obtained a Bacholor's Degree in English from Xavier University of Louisiana, and I obtained a teaching certificate from National University in SanDiego, California. My teaching career began in 1998 in Beaumont, Texas where I taught fourth grade. After that first year, I returned to Louisiana to teach in St. Tammany Parish where I taught fifth grade for two years and sixth grade at Pine View Middle School for twelve years. In 2014, I transferred to Folsom Junior High where I have had the privilege to teach sixth grade English/Language Arts.
As a teacher, I have two primary goals: to help my students further develop their reading comprehension and writng skills, and to create a safe and positive learning environment. I believe these goals can be accomplished with the support of our learning community. Therefore, I will work diligenlty with students, parents, teachers, and administrators to help students progress this school year.
If you have any questions or need any extra support during the year, please feel free to contact me at: (985) 796-3724 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
