Brief Bio
Ms. Landry is a product of a CSJ education and firmly believes in forming young women to become all of which they are capable, mind, body, and soul. She "became a Belle" at SMA in 2011 as a teacher through Loyola Marymount University's PLACE Corps while pursuing her Master's degree in Secondary Education. Throughout her time here she has made her classroom a place where students are challenged to bolster their academic toolkit with new strategies and skills of learning and thinking. She is passionate about helping students and teachers seek "excellence" the CSJ way--through "gentleness, peace, and joy." Ms. Landry comes to us with a wide range of experience in youth education: prior to teaching at SMA she was the director of after school and supplemental learning programs at an elementary school for three years in Santa Ana, was a foundational level mathematics tutor and California High School Exit Exam tutor at a continuation high school for four years, and served as a youth ministry leader of ten years at her parish. Ms. Landry continues to broaden her knowledge of American History, Government, and Economics by spending her time reading books, watching documentaries, and listening to fascinating podcasts about the subjects she teaches. She also regularly attends teacher professional developments taught by noted historians and professors, often traveling far to do so. When she's not teaching or helping out at SMA, Ms. Landry enjoys great television, live theatre, yoga, cooking, playing handbells, and winning at board games.
