A Little About Me
This year marks my seventh year teaching in St. Tammany Parish. I have taught Fifth grade my first
year teaching and won Teacher of the Year at Abita Middle School. This is my sixth year teaching
First Grade at Pontchartrain Elementary School. Last year, I was nominated and won the
Superintendent's Award for Character and Citizenship Award for 2016. What a great honor to be
chosen from the whole parish. So thankful to all my family, friends, parents, students, co-workers,
and administration for being so very supportive in my journey. I truly enjoy teaching First Grade. My
students are my heart and I love teaching and encouraging them. I am very passionate about
being a teacher and a role model to others. I love watching my students grow academically and
I was born to be a TEACHER…
to encourage, to instruct, to mentor, to inspire, to praise, to guide…IT'S WHO I AM!
My calling, My passion, My life & My world.
