MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

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 mentor. I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in May 2014. I am excited about the future!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live in Baton Rouge, LA with my husband and our crazy Catahoula, Evie.
