    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, it is my goal 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!
