I love hands on learning in a positive and actively engaged environment.

I am a southern girl at heart...born and raised on the bayous of South Louisiana. I now live in Prairieville, LA with my husband (also a teacher), 3 young children, and our numerous pets including; dogs, cats, tortoises, and fish. When I'm not working, I enjoy family time traveling, watching movies, reading, and designing.
