I was born in New Orleans, LA. I grew up there and attended St Pius X elementary school for 2 years.

After that, I was in public schools all the way through college. I went to Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. I have 2 master’s degrees: Speech Communication Theory and Education-Curriculum and Instruction.

I’ve taught for 20 years, mostly elementary but some middle school, college and adult education. I taught for many years overseas: in Spain, Saudi Arabia, South Africa and Austria.

I love elementary-aged students’ enthusiasm. I love getting hugs. I love being a positive role model in the life of a child. I have the pleasure of teaching 4 different age-levels. I’m teaching Kindergarteners, first, second and third graders. They’re sweet and good-natured. These ages inspire me.

My favorite books are Chrysanthemum, Jane Eyre and Wodney Wat. I like to hike, read, crochet, eat dark chocolate and drink coffee.

To make sure my students have a really good day I look at each one, greet them, look into their eyes and smile.
