Assistant Principal

Ms. Kim Burrell

Born and raised in the Mississippi Delta, I am a proud product of Mississippi Public Schools.  After graduating from Greenwood High School in 1990, I attended and graduated from Harding University in Searcy, AR.  My teaching career began at Washington School in Greenville, MS, where I taught high school English and sponsored the yearbook and dance team.  After teaching there for three years, I moved to Olive Branch, MS, where I taught English and drama at Olive Branch Middle School.  After my third year at OBMS, I decided to pursue my Masters Degree in Administration and Leadership; so, I entered the sabbatical program through Delta State University.  For the next fourteen months, I interned at various schools in DeSoto County and completed my coursework. I then went on to complete my specialist degree in administration and leadership through Delta State. In 2003 I began my work as assistant principal at DeSoto Central Middle School.  I am currently in my seventeenth year with DeSoto Central.  

In addition to my school responsibilities, I am a daughter and mother. My mother lives in Horn Lake, MS, and is a retired teacher from Horn Lake High School.  I have a son, Whit, who is in 9th grade this year at DCHS; he is in the DCHS varsity band. I also have a daughter, Sara Wynn, who began 4th grade this fall.  My daughter attends Pleasant Hill Elementary and loves volleyball. We attend Goodman Oaks Church of Christ in Southaven, MS. My family and I love DeSoto County and firmly believe in the quality of public schools here.  Our goal is to make a positive difference in the lives of young people.
