Welcome to our classroom! 

Hello everyone! This will be my eight year teaching elementary school and second year at D.C. Reeves Elementary. I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University with a Masters in History and from Louisiana State University with a Bachelors in Design. However, I found my passion for teaching by working in New Orleans with Teach for America.

I believe its an educator's responsibility to help create productive and engaged citizens. By modeling appropriate behavior, having high expectations and through rigorous academic lessons, students realize that structure liberates and they feel safe to be themselves.  I strive to empower my students to take initiative in their learning and to teach my students life skills that they will find useful in their adult lives. Our classroom is inclusive, creative and mindful.

This school year will look and feel very different for our students due to the guidelines for Reopening Schools during the Covid-19 epidemic. We follow all WHO, CDC, BESE and TPSS recommendations and guidelines as much as possible. Please visit the Covid-19 links I included on this site for all the recommendations. Please make sure to let your students know that we will be social distancing and the wearing of masks is mandatory. Furthermore, students will be using chromebooks to complete assignments to reduce the sharing of materials.


Please contact me on the class dojo app, by email or leave a message for me at the front office.
