Tamica Brooks

I am excited to be PAMS Special Education teacher. The 2021-2022 school year is my 5th year as part of the PAMS family and my 14 year in education. I have taught 6th grade ELA; 6th-8th grade REad 180; 2nd grade ELA/Social Studies; and Kindergarten Special Education.

I have completed my teaching certification at The Southern University for grades 1-5. Next, I obtained my Masters of Education and certification in Special Education from Granf Canyon University in 2017. And now, I am enrolled at University of Louisiana at Monroe to obtain my 2nd masters degree in Education Diagnostics.

My goal is to help the learned to feel confident with their studies; not being afraid to ask questions; provide different strategies; to become critical thinkers; and be great learners.

I have been a speech therapist for 33 years. I began my career at Our Lady of the Lake Hospital, where I spent 20 years working with patients who required speech therapy. I made a lot of life long friends there and it was a wonderful experience for me. The next chapter of my life began when I came to WBR Parish. I am beginning my 14 year here and have really enjoyed working with elementary and middle school children. My PAM and Cohn family are the best part of my job!! I am thankful to be here.
