I want to take this time to welcome your student to the eighth grade and to my classroom. This is a special time in your child's life, being so close to becoming a high school student with increased responsibilities. It is a time for students to prove to themselves and others that they can succeed in school and that their success is primarily in their hands. I am excited about this new year of discovery awaiting us. We are going to spend this great year preparing your child for success not only in the eighth grade but also in high school and beyond.
I attended and received a Bachelor of Arts in Education degree from Southeastern Louisiana University in 1993 and then in 2011 received a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from American College of Education in Chicago.
My pledge is to bring everything I have learned through my Bachelor's degree, Master's degree, and innumerable professional development opportunities throughout my 26 years of teaching experience into the classroom for the 2017-2018 year. TOGETHER we will take the necessary steps toward success for a lifetime.
