I am a fifth year teacher at a magnet middle school in Baton Rouge, LA. I graduated with a degree in History with a concentration in Secondary Education from Louisiana State University. I am certified to teach Secondary Social Studies and English Language Arts. For three years, I taught 6th-8th grade ELA and publishing courses to magnet students part of a new Digital Arts and Technology Academy. Currently, I see Social Studies at the same school and strive to create challenging lessons that incorporate technology in meaningful ways.
My goal is to teach to the needs of my students to help them become the best historians, readers, and writers they can be! I like to incorporate hands-on activities and technology whenever possible.
Yet to be added
I grew up attending small, private, Catholic schools in southern Louisiana. I always loved to learn and wanted to be a teacher since I was very young. I had a chalkboard in my garage as a child and playing teacher was my favorite game. I graduated from a small all-girls academy and went on to study at Louisiana State University. I entered the Geaux Teach program and had an amazing student teaching experience. I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in May 2014. I am excited about the future!
I live in Baton Rouge, LA with my husband and our crazy dogs, Evie and Tilly.
