Hello and welcome to my classroom! This will be my 10th year teaching. I love teaching and I especially love teaching the children at Sixth Ward Elementary!
I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University in the fall of 2007 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. My teaching career began at Mandeville Middle teaching a mild/moderate 5th/6th grade class for a semester. Then, I moved out of the parish and taught kindergarten in DeRidder, LA for 2 years. Upon returning to St. Tammany parish, I received a 1 year position at Cypress Cove Elementary teaching kindergarten. This will be my 6th year teaching at SWE; 5 of those years were spent in kindergarten and this will be my first year in 1st grade. I have also attended professional development for Kagan, BURST, Word Work/Phonics, DIBELS Next, and behavior management strategies among others.
I look forward to this new school year. We will cover many interesting topics!
