I am beginning my 17th year of teaching. I taught three years in Arkansas and have taught 13 years in Louisiana. I also am certified with the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards.
My teaching style really depends on the class and the students. I am creative, energetic, caring, strict, structured, and demanding all at the same time.
I have been selected Teacher of the Year and Outstanding 8th Grade Teacher. I also am a Destination Imagination Team Manager with teams who have placed either first or second at state competition every year for 10 years. All of my teams but one have advanced to compete in Global Finals, with three of my teams placing in the top ten. My most recent team placed 6th, which was the highest any Louisiana team had ever placed.
