About Me

I graduated from Louisiana Tech University in 1988 with a Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Engineering. Employed as a reservoir engineer for 17 years, in 2003 I began pursuing my alternate teaching certification and Masters of Arts in Teaching. I began my teaching career at Apollo Elementary School where I taught 3rd grade for 7 years and taught grades K-5 technology skills in the computer lab for 5 years. I spent 2 years as Education Director of Cypress Nature Center before coming to Waller Elementary to be the Instructional Coach. I have over 14 years of experience as an educator working in a variety of public school settings in Bossier Parish. My passion for teaching and learning inspired me to become an Instructional Coach and a Google Certified Trainer for our parish!

Personally I am the wife of David Abney and the mother of Caitlyn, Taylor, Clayton and Travis. We had the privilege of seeing both our daughters blissfully wedded to the men of their dreams this past year. My family is such a blessing to me and I am thankful everyday for them. We all enjoy the outdoors!!
