Hello and welcome to my 1st grade classroom. While I was student teaching at Sixth Ward, I fell in love with the school. That is why I am thrilled to be in my 7th year of teaching here at Sixth Ward.
I graduated from Louisiana State University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology. Later, I earned my Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree from Southeastern Louisiana Universtiy in 2011. I have also attended professional development for Kagan, DIBELS Next/BURST, Co-Teaching, Meaningful Math Work Stations, and Word Work/Phonics among others. I taught 2nd grade for two years, and now I am in my 5th year of teaching 1st grade at Sixth Ward Elementary.
I look forward to this new school year. First grade is such a year of growth. I am excited about watching my students become more confident as they become readers, writers, and problem solvers.
