Why did you come to Louisiana Key Academy? My husband is a pastor and relocated to River Community Church in Prairieville from the western suburbs of Chicago. I heard about LAKey through church members, applied and was hired. (I am a reading specialist.) In a prior job teaching at the university level, my supervisor asked what my dream job would be. I told her it would be teaching reading to small groups of struggling elementary children! Amazing!
What's your favorite thing about teaching? Seeing the 'aha' light in the eyes.
What's your favorite vacation spot? Western South Dakota
When I'm not at school, I like to...hang out at home with my family, play music, read, do puzzles, swim, hike, vacation
What's your perfect pizza? loaded with tons of vegetables
What's your favorite book? Why? The Bible because it's my anchor. Following that, The Narnian: The Life of C.S. Lewis.
Who is your hero? Ruby Bridges
What's the weirdest thing about you? (dunno if these are 'weird' but perhaps unusual!) I've climbed to the top of Mt. Sinai where Moses received the Ten Commandments from God (while recovering from food poisoning). I've sat on the bottom of the Red Sea and looked up through 30 feet of water while all kinds of critters swam around me. I also woke up in the middle of a buffalo herd (there's a story there!!).
What's your favorite knock-knock joke?
No bell, that's why I knocked.
