Welcome to my homepage. I am so excited to be working with you and your child this school year. We have a great team in our classroom, including myself, Mrs. Sherry Lapoint, Mrs. Rachel Viator, and Ms. Fayla Conner.

A little about me....

I graduated McNeese State University in 2003 with a Bachelor's Degree in Education (elementary, 1-8 and mild/moderate, k-12). I have taught in three parishes and four schools in my thirteen years in education, and have been at Lake Arthur High School for 8 years, now. In 2013, I completed my Master's program and earned my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership.

I live in Welsh, Louisiana. I am married and have three children, ages 15, 8, and 3.

If you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to email me or call school. I will be more than happy to assist you in any way I can.

Please check back regularly for updates and important information!
