9th Grade English
This is my 30th year in Education and it is extremely exciting to be here at Mandeville High. I am passionate about seeing students truly learn HOW to learn (instead of simply memorizing material) and seeing those same students use their new-found knowledge to further their educations and their characters. Your children matter, and I hope to partner with you to see them succeed.
After earning a BA in Liberal Studies from McNeese State University, I pursued a BA in Theology and a Master's of English and Teaching from UNO. I also did post graduate work at Belmont University in Nashville and studied Visual Arts/Scupture at New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts. As a Teacher/Consultant for the National Writing project, I strive to help students learn to communicate effectively through writing. Teaching in both public and private schools in Tennessee and Louisiana has afforded me a unique perspective concerning what will be expected from students as they progress in their education.
I am so looking forward to a highly successful year of growth!
