Hello and welcome to my 4th Grade Math classroom. This is my 20th year teaching and my 2nd year at St. Tammany Parish. I am very excited to teach at Bayou Lacombe Middle School this year.
I graduated from Xavier University with a B.A. in Political Science and Elementary Certification. Throughout my career, I have attended many professional development seminars across the curriculum. Also, I was a Math Coach for two years and a Tap Evaluator for one year.
I look forward to this new school year. It will be filled with many enriching experiences, challenges, and opportunities for students to make extensions and self-discoveries.
Please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to respond.
