Degrees and Certifications:
I grew up in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and I moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, after I graduated from high school. I attended Louisiana State University, and I started teaching as soon as I graduated. This is my 30th year as a teacher, and I have taught special education (grades 1-5), math (grades 4 &6), science (grade 7), social studies (grade 6), reading and language arts (grade 7), and my favorite...6th grade reading and language arts. I have been teaching reading to 6th graders for the last 18 years, and I love this age group. This is my 11th year teaching in Pearland, and I am excited to be here at Rogers Middle School. I have taught in Louisiana, Georgia, and Texas.
I am married with a 10-year old son who attends Silvercrest Elementary. I also have three dogs: Beaux, Roy, and Maggie. My hobbies include reading, playing the piano, and playing with my son. I am a huge LSU football fan, so I also love to watch the Tigers play football.
