Elementary Teacher - 1st Grade
I went to Ouachita High and transferred to River Oaks when my father retired from coaching at NLU and began coaching there.I graduated in 1997. I graduated from ULM with a degree in Marketing in May2000. I decided to leave the business world and become a teacher after helpling my sister learn to read and write again after a massive stroke at 45. I enrolled in school in January 2018 after passing the teacher certification tests. The experience of my sister’s stroke left me with a desire to leave the business world and enter into a field where I felt I was making a difference. I will graduate with a Masters in Eductation May 2020.
