She then attended the University of New Orleans where she received a Masters of Arts in Teaching. Ms. Chrisman has been teaching at Chalmette High School for five years.
Ms. Chrisman always loved how history allowed her to see into the past and understand how the past impacts the world around us. History was always her favorite subject growing up, and it has inspired her to travel to see many of the places she has read about. Ms. Chrisman has been to seven other countries, including France, Belgium, Germany, and Mexico. Being able to see historical places first hand and experience the culture of these other countries inspired her to teach and share this with her students.
Ms. Chrisman has coached Academic Games for five years. She really enjoys working with the students outside of the classroom and helping them prepare for victories at nationals.
