I started my adventures in education as a high school band director after graduating with a music education degree from Louisiana State University and moving to Texas. After six years, I changed lanes to explore elementary education and taught kindergarten or first grade for the next 10 years, earning English as a Second Language and Bilingual Education certifications along the way. In Spring 2022, I graduated with a master's degree in educational leadership from Texas A&M University with a specialization in bilingual education.
Last fall, I made the decision, with the encouragement of my supportive partner, to take a break from the classroom to build my business helping Texas bilingual teachers prepare for and pass the 5 difficult certification exams required to hold a fully certified teacher position. It brings me so much joy to be a part of these teachers' journeys and celebrate with them as they enter their classroom for the first year of teaching! I am taking this opportunity to focus on my health and wellness as I consider the many possible future paths ahead. For now, I have more time to enjoy the things that I truly love - hiking, training my dogs, traveling, learning, and making the world a better place.
