    Welcome! I am so excited to have you in my class this year! This will be my seventh year teaching at MES, but my ninth year teaching academic gifted classes.  Growing up I was fortunate enough to be a part of the gifted program at Carolyn Park Middle, Slidell Jr. and Slidell High School.

    I was a gymnast my entire life, and competed for the University of Nebraska and LSU on a gymnastics scholarship. I graduated from LSU in 2007 with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education, and then graduated in 2009 with my Master's in Gifted Education.

    My mission for our class is to create a positive, safe and challenging environment in which all students are learning at their level by giving choices on what they learn, how they learn, and how they show what they've learned.
