My classroom philosophy is to make every student feel safe, comfortable, and secure in their learning environment. I set high attainable goals for my class, but I also focus on individualized learning goals for each student so that he or she can grow and achieve at their own pace. My goal is support and encourage each student on their academic journey so that they can be a successful life-long learner.
I graduated from Mississippi College in Clinton, MS with my Bachelor's degree in Communications with an emphasis in Mass Media in 2011. After years in the radio and TV business, I realized that my true passion was teaching. I decided to go back to Mississippi College and complete my Masters degree in Teaching in 2014. I am currently in my 5th year of teaching, and absolutely love what I do. I am originally from Natchez, MS and moved to Louisiana in 2016. I currently reside in Covington, LA and am still learning all about St. Tammany Parish and our community. This will be my 2nd year teaching 4th grade at Riverside Elementary, and I am excited for the 2017-2018 year!
