This past summer, my family and I moved to Texas after spending nearly ten years in New Orleans. I’m excited to have also found a new home in Plano ISD as I begin my seventh year in education.
In the classroom, I will share the value of the act of reading and writing, not just as a form of entertainment, but also as a way to understand the world and communicate in it. As part of this process, I challenge our students with questions that will stretch their capacity to think and respond.
My additional work experience includes operating a private sports and social company in New Orleans as well as working in research at the University of Cambridge.
Outside the classroom, I officiate high school and college football as well as hockey locally. I enjoy traveling and drinking coffee.
I’m excited to be at Clark and looking forward to a year of growth and success with our students!
