I am proud to be a 5th grade teacher at Scanlan Oaks Elementary. This will be my 2nd year teaching at Scanlan Oaks. I live in Sienna Plantation and I am grateful to teach in the community. I am the proud mother of two girls with my husband, Tony. Mary is an 8th grader at Thornton Middle School and Anna is a 5th here at SOE. In addtion to spending time with my family I enjoy reading, traveling, and hiking.
I am orginally from Baton Rouge, LA where I attended Louisiana State University. Go Tigers! Then I graduated from University of Iowa with a masters degree in Educational Psychology. My teaching philosophy is that the classroom is a learning community. Each student contributes to our learning in their own unique way. My role as an educator is to act as a guide encouring students to reach their potential.
"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."
