I teach gifted elementary students in grades 1-6 in Iberia Parish, Louisiana.  My favorite subjects to teach are writing and art, especially writing with art.  I have been teaching for 24 years.  My passion is community service, especially Solomon House ( a local outreach mission/food bank) and the Humane Society.
