    Welcome to 2nd grade! I am so excited to be your teacher this year. This will officially be my second year in the classroom and my 5th year at TES. Since I was six years old, I have wanted to be a teacher. My 2nd grade teacher shaped that experience for me and the passion to shape the lives of other students grew stronger over the years. I would often play school with invisible students and although it drove my family nuts, it began to shape me as a teacher. I have a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a Master's in Early Childhood as well as Special Education. I began with the end in mind, worked hard, stuck to my goal, put first things first and here I am! 

    When I am not planning fun and engaging activities for my students, I am spending time with my family. My husband and I, both born and raised in New Orleans, LA have a wonderful blended family of 4 kids. My two stepsons, Vonnie & CJ (16 & 13 years old) currently reside in New Orleans which means we get to travel back home quite often to spend time with them and eat great food :). My daughter, Kennedi (13 years old) is a Timberline graduate and currently an 8th grade student at CTMS. Our classroom this year has sentimental value as this was Kennedi's 2nd grade classroom when she attended Timberline. She's currently a member of CTMS 8th grade cheer squad & choir, AIMPAC hip hop dance competition team, Premier Martial Arts (black belt), and CTMS basketball and track team. Whew!!!! She keeps me busy. I also have a busy 5 year old who warms my heart. Cailon has now joined our tiger squad here at TES as a kindergartner. He also takes swim lessons, plays flag football and T-ball. When I am not supporting my kids, I can be found in a quiet place reading. I LOVE to read. Did I tell you, I LOVE to read ;)! I also enjoy football (Saints Fan), eating, shopping, and traveling. Anyone who knows me will tell you how much I love a great restaurant, especially one near a beach. I also happen to truly love Timberline Elementary where I spend time helping our other highly dedicated teachers reach our goals as a school. 

    As a leader in me school, my goal is to be 100% dedicated to your success! Together we will learn, explore, and be the B.E.S.T. us possible. My mission is to be as inspiring to each of you as my 2nd grade teacher was to me! I am looking forward to a wonderful year together and I am happy you have chosen to join our family of amazing Tigers that are leading our future!
