A Little About Me
I am a South Louisiana Cajun (yes I can cook gumbo), but have lived in Texas for nearly 25 years and am a proud Lone Star now.
I have four children.
a dog (Mimsy - on the left),
..and a few other animals.
I am looking forward to teaching fifth graders and especially to teaching Science and Social Studies. I opened Lindsey and taught 4th grade Math or Math/Science here for the first 3 years it was open. The last few years I taught 5th grade Science and Social Studies at Lindsey. I have also taught as an SSI teacher at Olson and Cheatham. Prior to teaching I was home with my four children for a few years, and worked 10 years prior to that in the oil industry, …. yes APPLYING that Math and Science!!!!
These are a few of my favorite things:
Hands on Science
Playing games (A great way to learn!!!)
The outdoors (We love to camp.)
Water Skiing and Lake Surfing
Animals! Animals! Animals! I love dogs, horses, ducks (yes I had pet ducks growing up),
cats, guinea pigs, fish, hermit crabs, even cows! We currently have two baby donkeys.
Teaching and getting to know my students!!!
