The beauty of the Bayou Teche runs behind my house. My backyard is decorated with majestic old oaks and sprawling cypress trees. The setting inspires reflection. Look into this site to read my thoughts and poems about my life on the bayou, teaching gifted students, and nurturing a family.
I live on the Bayou Teche in New Iberia, Louisiana. I am passionate about teaching, poetry, Charlie my schnoodle, my three daughters, and dancing with my husband of nearly 30 years. I write to escape, and I write to experience. I write to know what I know, and sometimes just because it's fun to play with words.
