I am married to Roy Woods, a teacher. We got married lastNovember! I graduated from LSU with a Master’s degree in ElementaryEducation in 1997. This is my 15th year teaching and my 6th year at Bonne Ecole. I believe that learning starts with my students feeling like they arean important part of our classroom “family” and giving them the powerto be in charge of their own learning
