I would like to introduce myself. This is my eleventh year at Fairfield Magnet and I am very excited about being here! This is my 24th year as a teacher and my thirteenth year teaching first grade. I have three wonderful daughters. My youngest daughter, Alayna, will be a freshman at C. E. Byrd Magnet. My middle daughter, Sydney, will be attending ULM in West Monroe to pursue a degree in nursing. My oldest daughter, Kara, is in her third year at LA Tech University and she wants to become a dentist. My husband, Douglas, is a vice principal at Bossier High School. He is a Canadian and we love to visit his parents in Nova Scotia when we can. We met in Canada while I was working with the BSU. We have been married for twenty-seven years. I grew up in Keithville and have always attended Caddo Parish Schools. I am an active member of Summer Grove Baptist Church. I have completed my Master’s Degree in Guidance and Counseling at LA Tech University. I realize the need for a strong educational background and I intend to provide that for each child in my classroom.
I strive to meet each child’s learning style by using a variety of teaching methods. I also strive to make this learning process fun!
