    Hello everyone!  I will be your Pre K-4 through 4th grade librarian this year.  I am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you. This is my tenth year of teaching at Visitation.  It excites me to teach at my alma mater.  Visitation is like a second home to me.  I am a graduate of Visitation, Archbishop Blenk, and Tulane University.  I have received a Bachelor's degree from Tulane University in Communications and Paralegal Studies.  I then went on to receive my teacher certification from Our Lady of Holy Cross College.  Finally, I earned my Master's degree in Educational Leadership through Louisiana State University.  I am married to my grade school sweetheart, Raymond (who also attended Visitation).  We have two beautiful children, Aiden Joseph and Emree Rae (twins!) They are in 2nd grade at VOL.  They are my world!  My hobbies include reading, camping, cooking, the New Orleans Saints, and hanging out with my friends and family.  I am also a godmother to three amazing little boys, Reese, Aaron, and Joseph and two beautiful little girls, Elise and Ella.

        My philosophy as an educator is to instill a love of reading and learning in my students, as I share my own love for learning with them.  I believe that each student is an extraordinary person who needs a trustworthy, cautious, and established place in which they can grow and mature as an individual.  My goals for this 2018-2019 school year include incorporating a wider variety of reading activities that cater to different learning styles so that I am able to affect every student. My wish for each child is to take away a love for reading.  I have participated in a variety of workshops and college courses and plan to implement some of the skills learned into my classroom  as always.   I am excited to be at Visitation and I hope to give my students the same experience that I had as a student here.  I strive each day, as an educator, to live out our mission statement here at Visitation, 
Inspiring Catholic Faith and Principles While Encouraging Academic Excellence.
