Life in the City

Perhaps the best part about living in Baton Rouge is the uniqueness of the local culture – from the food to Mardi Gras parades to crawfish boils to Cajun accents. Just outside the city, you end up in bayou country; the swamp tours are not to be missed!

Why did you say "yes" to serving children in Catholic schools through ACE?

Teaching is a ministry through which we are able to share our love and knowledge with students as they grow into the wonderful people they are meant to be. I am so excited to walk with students through these formative years of their life and education as my teachers did with me.
