This year marks number 27 in my career and number 7 teaching self-contained classes. I am married to my wonderful husband John for 26 years. We have 3 children (well adults now). Kate is a teacher at Woodstock High School, Madi works at the Maryland Historical Society in Baltimore and Nick just graduated in Mechanical Engineering from University of Dayton. We also have 3 four legged babies. 2 Old English Sheepdogs, Ellie and Henry, and a Shitzu mix, Murphy. I enjoy all things LSU Tigers and camping with friends and family. I am very fortunate to be on this journey everyday with a wonderful group of students, their families, and the best coworkers around. We are discovering new things each day. I feel like learning is all about grabbing those teachable moments that make us all feel as if there is more to know. I especially look forward to laughing, learning and loving the whole year through.
