I graduated high school from Word of Faith Academy, a Christian school in New Orleans, La in 1986. After graduating from college in 1991 with an Elementary Education degree, I returned to Word of Faith Academy to teach 3rd grade. I taught there for two years. I then stayed home for five years following the birth of my kids. I returned to teaching at Spring Cypress Presbyterian School. I taught 1st grade there for five years and Pre-Kindergarten for two years. I also taught an elective computer class to Middle school students and worked in the office for one year. I was a tutor at Sylvan Learning Center for a year. I then worked for the YMCA with their before and after school program. I have been teaching at Sojourn Academy since 2012. I taught 3rd grade for one year. Then I moved to 2nd grade. I taught 2nd grade for three and a half years now.
