LSU Graduate : B.S. Food Science and Technology
2014 teachNOLA Fellow: 6-12 General Science
A Little About Me
I grew up in River Ridge, LA, where I attended St. Matthew the Apostle School through 8th grade. After being at Ursuline Academy for a week as a freshman, my family was relocated to Lafayette, LA, for the remainder of the school year do to Hurricane Katrina. From there we moved to Katy, TX, where I completed high school before returning to Louisiana to attend Louisiana State University.
In my senior year of high school I was fortunate enough to be able to take a Nutrition and Food Science class. This class is what got me started thinking and excited about food science. I attended LSU the following year and graduated in December 2013 with a B.S. in Food Science and Technology.
After developing my skills as a food science major, my experience substituting in Lafayette Parish Private Schools has kick started my preparation for lead my own classroom this fall.
As part of the 2014 teachNOLA cohort, I was fortunate enough to learn from some of the best teachers in New Orleans. During the summer, I participated and pass a five-week intensive training program which included three weeks of lead teaching in a New Orleans public school.
I look forward to teaching the students of New Orleans and being part of a school that is making a strong move to give students the necessary tools to be college and career ready.
I am eager to share my high expectations and passion for science with the students this fall.
