    Welcome to another exciting year at Clearwood Jr. High!  I am very happy to be back at Clearwood for the second year teaching both Math and ELA in the 5th grade Resource Room.  It always brings me so much joy to do what I love best~ teaching!


    I started teaching special education in the resource setting in St. Bernard Parish from 1979-1984.  I taught at a private school in Mandeville for a few years before I began teaching in St. Tammany Parish in 1988.  I taught in the resource room at Pineview Middle School in Covington from 1988-2001. 


    My University Days were spent at the University of New Orleans where I graduated with a BA in elementary education and a minor in special education.  Graduate hours were spent aquiring certifications in specialized areas of special education.  Other experiences that have helped hone my teaching experience is 3 years spent at Abney Elementary School as a Reading Interventionist.

    I look forward to working with your students this school year!
