    Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!” – Audrey Hepburn


    Eight years ago I graduated from the University of Oregon bushy tailed and wide eyed ready to take on the world of teaching. Sadly, I found myself in the middle of a hiring freeze with no jobs available at all. So, what did I do? I got in my car and drove to Louisiana of course! I was interested in the rebuilding of the school system that was taking place after Katrina and knew that there would be plenty of jobs available. What I didn’t know was that I would fall in love with the people, food, and culture!

     I spent four years teaching 1st grade in New Orleans, where I met and married my husband Jay, before moving to the north shore to be closer to his family. I taught one year of 3rd grade in Slidell, before I found myself at Hammond Eastside with a 5th grade position. I really enjoy working with fifth graders and am looking forward to continuing this adventure.
