Welcome to my class. This is my eighth year teaching and my eighth year at Lakewood Elementary School. I am looking forward to getting to know each of you and having a fun year filled with laughter and learning! I will teach ELA and social studies this year.

I am also a proud product of St. Charles Parish Public Schools, graduating from Destrehan High School in 2009.

This year I will incorporate Google Classroom with our district provided Chromebooks. Google Classroom is a tool that allows me to post announcements and reminders for students. It also allows for class assignments and submissions to be posted and collected digitally.

To access Google Classroom please use the following link and have your child log in to their Google account. Once logged in, you can review class announcements, assignments, and course information. You can also view Google Docs from the "Google Classroom" link on the left side of the menu.


  • Our daily schedule begins with students in their homeroom classes and switching to their switch teacher's class in the middle of the day. The students will then go through their subjects, and they will be dismissed from their switch teacher's classroom at the end of the day.


    Planning Period: 11:05 - 11:55
