I know how my name looks. It isn't pronounced that way.

I am a proud product of Desoto County Schools. I graduated from Southaven High in 2004 and attended the University of Mississippi, where I pursued a degree in English and History. Following my graduation, I received my educator's certification from the state of Mississippi in 2010 and quickly became a member of the SMS faculty. In my time as a Charger, I have educated students with special needs, taught English Language Arts, and worked to share American history with eighth grade students. I am also Dad to an awesome two-year-old son, Ezra Vance. 




I love teaching. It gives me the opportunity to reach out and impart my love of learning and history to new groups of young adults every year. This job isn't just about learning and regurgitating information; it's about relationships. I strive to create meaningful student/teacher rapports to ensure student success.

Thank you for the chance to instruct your student this year. I know it will be a great one!
