Students and Families!

I am a French native and have been in Saint Louis for the past 15 years. I have been teaching (from preschool to college level) for more than 20 years.

I have earned a Bachelor in Elementary and Special Education from Fontbonne. Later on, I graduated from SLU with an MBA and a Master in Educational Leadership. In the Spring of 2020, I earned my Educational Doctorate from SLU. I recently received my certification as a Reading Specialist, and I am currently enrolled in the TESOL program at UMSL.

I am excited to be the Reading Specialist at Nahed Chapman. I enjoy helping students develop their skills in reading fluency and comprehension. I am looking forward to a great year at Nahed Chapman New American Academy.
