About The Teacher

Degrees and Certification Areas: Bachelor of Arts, secondary English Education

I have 9 years of classroom teaching experience.

ABOUT ME: I am a native of New Orleans and graduate of St. Mary's Dominican 
High and UNO. I taught at St. Mary's Dominican for 7 years before moving to 
the Atlanta area in 2000, after my first son was born. From 2000-2011, I 
stayed home with my two sons, earnestly learning about autism and its 
treatment/education options to help my oldest son develop to his potential. I 
also began working part time at Sylvan Learning Center in GA, returning to 
classroom teaching part time in 2011 at St. Rose Academy. My husband, two 
sons and I moved to Mandeville in 2013, and I taught ESL at Lakeshore High in 
2014. I am delighted to be back for my second year teaching gifted English students at Mandeville 

Mission For My Classes:

My mission is to help my students develop as active and creative thinkers, 
speakers, and learners who are at ease with analyzing all forms of literature 
and writing, while demonstrating excellent writing and research skills.
