    About the Teacher

    I am currently teaching AP Government, US History and Learning Strategies for US History SATP.  In the past, I have taught Government, Law Related Education and AP US History.

    I am starting my 17th year of teaching... 8 years spent in Southeast Louisiana and 9 years in Mississippi (starting my 5th year at Ridgeland High School.

    I hold two bachelors (Political Science {Pre-Law} and Secondary Social Studies Education) and two masters degrees (M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction for Secondary Social Studies and M.A. in History).  I was honored to be chosen as an intern for the Louisiana State Legislature and the United States Supreme Court.  I have served on state test writing teams in Louisiana & Mississippi. 

    I have been married to Bryan for 11 years and have an 8 year old daughter who is beginning 4th grade at Mannsdale Upper Elementary.

    I am from Southeast Louisiana (Geaux Saints!) and attended college in Georgia (Go Bulldogs) and Louisiana (NOT LSU!) I love to cook, watch a good history OR scary movie and l LOVE to compete in almost every sport.  I love everything college and professional football!

    About the Classroom
    US History will take 3 district assessments (October, December and March), 4 mock SATP tests (August, January, March and May), and the official SATP in May, 2019. 
    I am available for additional help and specific times will be posted at a later date.  (PLEASE BRING YOUR ID TO SIGN IN!).
