# Biographical Sketch

I was raised in Northeast Louisiana. I have three children and seven grandchildren. I love spending time with my family. My husband and I enjoy traveling but the best part is coming home.

My heart is in education. I taught high school for 21 years before moving to the university level. I have been at ULM for 15 years. I love working with teacher candidates and teachers already in the classroom. I feel that I can make the greatest impact on education by working with these teachers.
