Hello family and friends of Industrial School District. I am excited to start my fifth year as the 7th grade math teacher at Industrial Junior High and my tenth year of teaching!I am from a small farm town of Monterey, Louisiana. There, I graduated high school in 1994. I began my college career at University of Louisiana at Monroe. For those of you who don't know where that may be, it is just across the river from the home town of America's well known family, The Robertson's from Duck Dynasty! In 1999, I graduated from ULM with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Radiologic Technology and in 2011 received a Master's in Education from William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. This past August, I completed my Administrator's certification from Lamar University in Educational Leadership.In 1998, I met my husband, Mike, who is from the Mississippi Gulf Coast town of Long Beach. We later married and now have two wonderful children. Our daughter, Allie, will be a senior at IHS and our 13 year old son, Matthew, will be in 8th grade this year at IJHS. Time please slow down!I LOVE LOVE LOVE Sports. When it comes to football, I am a "die-hard" SAINTS fan but don't hold that against me!I am happy to be a part of the Industrial Junior High team and look forward to an awesome school year! Go RATTLERS!
