        Hello and welcome to my class page! I am excited to be teaching 1st grade at Madisonville Elementary this year. I have taught for 5 years. Before moving to first grade, I taught Special Education-first and second grade, gifted math- second grade, and Transitional-first grade.

        I graduated in 2013 from Southeastern Louisiana University with a bachelor’s degree in Regular Education 1-5 and Special Education/Mild to Moderate. After teaching a year, I returned to school and earned my Masters in Curriculum Instruction. I have also attended 60+ hours of professional development in St.Tammany Parish.

       As your child’s teacher, I aim to create an atmosphere that encourages curiosity, determination, and success. It is my desire to accomplish this by using a variety of teaching methods such as whole group instruction, small groups instruction, independent work, cooperative projects and learning stations. Our classroom is a place where students feel important, respected, cared for and believed in.  I know that by working together we can make this year an enjoyable, rewarding, and productive year.
