Hey everyone! In these uncertain times, know that I am doing everything I can to help your AP student succeed! I am updating my Google Classroom daily. I have posted all notes, Geographer's Journals, am making videos for the next unit with assignments (not to be graded, at this time), and answering questions. I'm also giving all the information given to me from College Board. Check here for their most up to date info:

If you or your student has a question, please email me! Have them check Google Classroom DAILY!  The iScore5 app for AP Human Geography is a great study tool and it's now only $2.99.

Welcome to my class! I am looking forward to teaching your children AP Human Geography or World Geography this year!

This is my 16th year teaching and my 16th year at Destrehan High School. I student taught at DHS in Fall 2004 and was offered a job starting in Spring 2005. I began by teaching Juniors Free Enterprise and World Geography (and a random Honors Civics and World History), but after two years, moved to the Freshman Team, where I taught both Civics and World Geography. Starting in Fall 2017, I moved to the Sophomore Team to teach AP Human Geography and World Geography, and I have loved every second of it! Geography is by far my favorite subject! I love to travel and to help my students learn about all the different places in the world. AP Human Geography is a great, fun, and interesting class, just more challenging since it is AP.

I was the 2016-2017 Teacher of the Year for Destrehan High School! In addition to teaching, I am also a member of the Louisiana Reading Association, the National Council for the Social Studies, and the National Council for Geographic Education. I love being involved and attend as many DHS after-school activities as possible! Geaux Wildcats!

Please do not hesitate to contact me whenever you feel necessary. Happy travels!
