Welcome to my website!
I received my Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Southern Mississippi in 2004. This will be my 14th year in St. Tammany Parish and this is the first year I will be the Dual Enrollment Coordinator full time. I am very excited to be in charge of this unique position at Salmen High School.
I was first hired as a gifted English teacher at Boyet Jr. High. I taught for four years at Boyet and suddenly, an opportunity opened up at Salmen. They wanted to hire a new English teacher to teach 12th grade as well as broadcasting. Since I had a strong technology background growing up, I was really excited to teach a media class. I was also lucky enough to be the first teacher to use the new broadcasting room at the new Salmen. I continued to teach English 10th grade and Broadcasting for several years until I was asked to teach speech communications. Again, I was ready for a change and welcomed a new subject to add to my teaching career. I taught speech for two years when another position was presented to me. I was asked to take the School-To-Work Coordinator position.
This new journey has been such a learning experience. I am so anxious to see where career technical classes will take our students and to see how those classes will evolve in the future. Currently, Salmen offers drafting, auto-tech, culinary, EMT, CNA, medical terminology, and soon welding for dual enrollment with Northshore Technical Community College. We also offer many certifications that our students may earn before they graduate.
