    Welcome to the Tchefuncte Middle School Physical Education website!

    This is my fourth year teaching and my third year at TMS.  I was born and raised in Mandeville and have been a part of the St. Tammany Parish school system my whole life.  I graduated from the Univeristy of Louisiana at Lafayette in 2014 with a bachelor's degree in Kinesiology:  Health and Physical Education.  After school, I serve as the assistant volleyball and basketball coach at Mandeville Junior High as well as the assistant softball coach at Mandeville High School.  I enjoy teaching our students about the benefits of physical activity while also furthering the joy of athletic competition to our young athletes and am thankful to be able to give back to the schools that have shaped the person I am today.

    We have Field Day coming up in May for our students!  If you would like to volunteer at Field Day, please follow the links below.  4th grade is on Wednesday, May 8 from 8:30-10:10AM.  5th grade is Wednesday, May 8 from 12:15-2:45PM.  6th grade is Friday, May 10 from 8:45-11:45AM.
