Welcome Chargers!

I hope everyone is looking forward to an exciting, challenging, and successful school year. Your teachers are here to help you develop responsibility, independence, and organization in addition to mastering the required academic objectives for all DeSoto County 6th grade students.

About Me

I grew up in Madison, MS and attended Mississippi College where I received my degree in elementary education. I also received my gifted education certification from the University of Mississippi.

I love spending time with my very large family. We love getting together for family dinners and celebrating holidays. Besides teaching, I love to draw, watch movies, go out to eat, and spend time with friends.


This year marks my 29th year of teaching! I began my career at Greenbrook Elementary teaching 6th grade Reading.  The following year I began teaching in the gifted education program at Southaven Middle School.
