I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to my class. I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your child this school year. I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I graduated from Southeastern LA University in 1982 with a Bachelors in Elementary Education for grades first through eighth. My certification in Special Education was also received from Southeastern LA University 2005. I have been teaching for thirty-four years and began teaching at Lee Road Junior High in 2004. I have taught all grades from first through high school and all core subjects. This year I have the pleasure of being one of the track coaches for Lee Road Junior High.
