I was born in Shreveport, LA to the parents of Martha and McHenry Williams. I am the youngest girl of five siblings. I have two children, Brandon is my oldest and Brandy is the younger. I was blessed with a beautiful granddaughter that comes to visit Mimi almost every week.
I moved to Lafayette after high school to attend the University of South Louisiana (now ULL), where I majored in Physical Education with a minor in Mathematics. I was on the first Ladies’ USL softball team, where I played right field. I enjoyed athletics, so I also tried out for the volleyball team, but quickly recognized it was not my strong sport. However, I was able to work as the manager that afforded me the opportunity to learn the sport and train the players.
I held several jobs before working at Westminster. One of the careers that I enjoyed was working at our Church’s Mother Day Out program. I was instrumental in transforming this curriculum from a daycare to a pre-school for 4 and 5 year old students.
When I returned to the workforce and started my career with WCA teaching sixth grade, I quickly realized that this was the age of kids that God lead me to educate. I had many great experiences over the 22 years at WCA and a few of those included: watching the sixth graders decorates socks and handkerchiefs for nursing home residents; traveling to Houston for our big field trip; ending the year at the ABC camp and having fun with the Opelousas sixth graders; and winning the LAF Teacher of the Year award.
I truly love what I have been blessed to do here at WCA and can’t wait to enjoy this school year with my new sixth graders and their families.
