Ms. Nations is a graduate from the University of New Orleans, where she received her Master of Arts in Teaching for grades 1-5. She gained an immense appreciation for the vital role literacy plays in our lives after working with YMCA Educational Services in New Orleans, helping adults acquire basic literacy skills. After witnessing the struggle people experience who lack the skills for reading and writing, Ms. Nations felt she wanted to be part of a change and work to help break the cycle of illiteracy. She believes that a love for learning begins early, and she is very excited to undertake her third year of teaching, where she hopes to help foster a love of learning within her 4th grade class.
In her free time, Ms. Nations enjoys reading and experiencing new things (at least once). She also enjoys learning and practicing American Sign Language. And, if you ask any of the students she worked with while teaching, she is obsessed with cats.
