I am so excited to be your child's teacher! This is my fifth year at Pontchartrain and my thirteenth year teaching! I have taught in both public and private schools and taught first, second, and fourth grade during my career. I graduated from LSU in May of 2005 with a Bachelor degree in Elementary Education.
I am from Louisiana and have lived here my entire life and could not imagine living anywhere else. I have two kids, a son in second grade at PES (Kaleb) and a son in daycare at Cedarwood (Kolton) and have the support of my husband (Kris) of 10 years!
I love teaching first grade! It is such a magical year as the kids become proficient readers and writers. Research shows that a relationship between the parent, the student, and the teacher are crucial for promoting an educational climate conducive to learning. I can't wait to get to know and experience this year of growth with each of your children. I am looking forward to getting to know each of you and your families and can't wait for all of the fun in store this year!
This year is going to "rock!"
