My Biography

I grew up in Jennings, Louisiana. After completing high school in 1987, I attended the University of Louisiana Lafayette and received my degree in Elementary Education. I taught second grade for fourteen years in Jennings before moving to Welsh Elementary where I have taught both third and second grade. I have three wonderful children. My oldest daughter Kristen is an elementary teacher as well. My two youngest children Jack and Hannah are currently attending Welsh Roanoke and Welsh High School. When I’m not teaching I enjoy supporting Jack and Hannah in their many extra-curricular activities. I love teaching and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. One of my favorite quotes by Dr. Seuss is: “The more that you read the more things that you will know. The more that you learn the more places you’ll go!”
