My name is Ms. Williams. I am a first grade teacher at Bayou Woods Elementary. I enjoy working with children and helping them reach for their dreams through their education. I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect. An education should empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world. Slidell, Louisiana has been my home town for the past eleven years. I am a huge Saints and Pelicans fan.
I graduated from Southern University in Baton Rouge in 1999 with a bachelor's degree in Mass Communications. Later I attended Southeastern Louisiana University and earned my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. This is my 13th year of teaching.
I am enthusiastic, passionate, driven, goal-oriented, and positive minded. I always encourage my students to work hard and never give up, no matter how difficult the task.
Every student is precious and has special gifts and talents. I believe it is my mission in life to encourage young people and help them to believe in themselves.
I look forward to getting to know all of you this school year!
