I have received my Bachelor of Science degree in Family and Consumer Sciences from McNeese State University, where I also received a degree in Education. I have 13 years of teaching experience at the elementary and junior high school levels combined. I am currently teaching 8th grade ELA. I am a native of Jennings and a graduate of Jennings High School. I am married to Todd Richard and have twin daughters, Kennedy and Kassidy. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends.
