Prior to teaching, I worked for the YMCA of Greater New Orleans as the Wellness and Sports Director. I enjoyed my time there and grew a love for our after school program to be able to help students with their work. This sparked my love for teaching. I am also the daughter of two educators that have shown me a love for teaching as well. I also worked with Ascent Health in Monroe and enjoyed my time their working with youth in the area. I recently left there to begin my teaching career.
I am married to Lucas Tolar. My husband is the youth pastor at First West – Fairbanks Campus. He is also the chaplain for the OPHS football team. We have a son named Henry, he is a year and a half old and full of energy. I love supporting my students in what they do. I want to relate to my students, care for them and show them how great of a purpose they each have in this world. My hobbies include running, teach group fitness classes, hanging out with friends and family and watching football and basketball.
