This year is the beginning of my 9th year as a teacher. I have taught Special Education each for 4 years. This will be my 5th year teaching pre K. This is my 5th year in Hackberry. I have also taught in Calcasieu Parish for 4 years. I graduated in 2004 from McNeese State University with a degree in General Studies. I later received my teaching certification through Louisiana College. I also received my Master’s of Teaching from Louisiana College in 2016. I am certified to teach Pre-K through 5th grade general education and K-12th grade Special Education. I have one daughter, Megan, who is 23 years old and a 4 year old Maltipoo, Maris, who visits the classroom often. We reside in Lake Charles.
