Subjects Taught
7th Grade History


I graduated from Ole Miss with a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration. I used this degree to further my education by attending TMI (Teach Mississippi Institute) where I earned my teaching credentials for 7th-12th grades.

I started out in the Special Education department when this school was just DeSoto Central School nearly 17 years ago. When DeSoto Central Elementary opened I became the library assistant. I held that job for five years before coming to the middle school. I have been here for almost 12 years. I worked with 8th grade inclusion students for 3 years and 7th grade inclusion students for almost 2 1/2 years. I have taught 6th grade for the last 5 years. This is my first year to teach 7th grade Eastern Hemisphere! I am super excited to be back in 7th grade and cannot wait to see what this year holds!





My family and I have lived in the Olive Branch/Nesbit area for 21 years. I have been happily married for over 27 years. I have two grown sons (Alex and JT) and a shih tzu puppy dog named Maya.

Here are a few of my favorite things: the Lord, my family, Hilton Head, tennis, cross-stitching, reading, Italian, Chinese, and Mexican food, anything chocolate and caramel, rootbeer, sunsets, Starbucks, snow, manicures/pedicures, spa days, and puppies!
