Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year. I would like to take this opportunity to give you a brief introduction of myself. I am a certified Special Education teacher. I earned my teaching certificate from McNeese State University. This is my fifth year teaching Special Education at Gillis Elementary and my tenth year teaching Special Education. In previous years, I have taught Reverse Mainstream Pre-K, Elementary and Middle school Resource, Early Childhood Autism, Self-Contained, and Elementary Autism. I feel so blessed to work with the best of the best at Gillis Elementary!
Here’s a little bit about myself outside of the classroom. I am married to an educator who was previously a high school head baseball coach and assistant football coach. I have 2 amazing (and very active) daughters, 2 dogs and 2 cats. My oldest daughter, Avery, is in fourth grade, French Immersion here at Gillis Elementary. My other daughter, Ansley, is in first grade, French Immersion at Gillis Elementary. It is truly a blessing to be at the same school as my babies.
