Subjects Taught
8th Grade Englsih


I am a graduate of Mississippi State University (#hailstate) with a bachelor's degree in Communication and an emphasis in Public Relations. During my senior year of college, I realized the job opportunities in my field were jobs that did not interest me. I decided that I wanted to become a teacher, and through the Mississippi Alternate Path for Qualified Teachers program, I am certified to teacher English 7th-12th grade. 


This is my fifth year in the Desoto County School District. I was an Reading Instructionalist Assistant at Lewisburg Elementary in the 2015-2016 school year. This year is my fourth year teaching English at Desoto Central Middle School, and I am so excited to be here! #TeamDCS #RaiseTheBar


Welcome to 8th grade English! I am so excited to be teaching at Desoto Central Middle School. I love reading and using words in a creative way; especially when jokes or puns are involved. During my free time, I love to paint and spend time outside. I have a side art business where I paint custom paintings. I also am a runner (mainly because I really do love food), and I am signed up for my fourth St. Jude half marathon! I am married to Carter Brinkley, who is the student pastor at Hernando Baptist Church. We have a little fur baby named Tobie, and he is a border-collie lab mix. He is so much fun! Every summer I go to Africa (Zimbabwe or Lesotho) and do ministry work with the local churches there. I have met the most amazing people over there! My desire is for my students to learn how to be kind human beings; to themselves and each other. I strongly believe if my students know how to be nicer to themselves and to each other, then I have ultimately done my job. My second desire is for my students to enjoy reading and writing at least a little more than they did the year before. With high expectations and creative lessons, I know this year is going to be great year!
