I'm originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and was a 2022 Louisiana Teacher of the Year Semifinalist. I graduated from Louisiana State University and have 15 years of education experience, having served as a math teacher, team lead, athletic coach, and mentor. I love building community through relationships with students, parents, & faculty. I look forward to fostering an equitable learning environment that empowers everyone for personal and academic success.
