Growing up in New Orleans, I was privileged to be exposed to a variety of people and experiences. As a child, I knew my calling was to teach. In fact, I would often teach the neighborhood children and even tape record sessions for them if they weren’t available.
After graduating from the University of New Orleans, I taught for four year in the Metro New Orleans area. Next, I moved to Michigan where I taught middle school Math and Science for four years in Midland. For the past thirteen years, I have taught Kindergarten-Tenth Grade in a wide array of subject areas. WIth twenty-one years of teaching under my belt, I have the knowledge and experience to feel comfortable in any classroom setting.
My husband and I are a blended family. We have three children ages 16, 13, and 10. We enjoy traveling, spending time with our families, fishing, and sitting by a warm fire on a cool evening.
Teaching and learning is dear to my heart. I continue to learn not only in the classroom, but also from my students. My goal is to be the very best possible advocate, teacher, and supporter for our students.
This year I am so excited to be a part of the WMAA staff. My role will be to assist the EL and SPED teachers and students. I look forward to the wonderful opportunity to help students thrive in such a caring environment. It is a privilege for me to be a part of the WMAA community.
