      Welcome to our class webpage.  Please use this webpage as a tool to 

assist you and your child in the learning process. 



      I have taught in the state of Louisiana for 26 years. I have been

teaching at Abita Springs Elementary for the past twenty years.  I find a 

tremendous amount of joy in working with students, staff, and parents at our 

school. I have a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction (Reading 

Specialist), 30 Graduate hours, and certification to be an administrator. I 

consider myself a lifelong learner.  Attending college classes and workshops 

is very rewarding for me. Keeping up to date with current teaching practices 

is vital to me as an educator. One of my goals as a first grade teacher is to 

instill a passion for learning and a love of reading in every child I teach! 

I truly love my job! 



    I have been married for 32 wonderful years to my husband Allen Turnage. 

We have two lovely daughters.  This fall we became grandparents! We have

a precious grandson! I love to read, garden, watch college football 

(Go Tigers), cheer for the Saints, travel, eat, drink coffee and spend time 

with family and friends!
