About the Teacher

I am so thrilled to be at Desoto Central Middle School teaching 7th grade ELA. Teaching has always been my passion, and I look forward to working with my students to help them grow in the area of English/Language Arts.
I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, and moved to Southaven in 2005. My family and I lost our home in Hurricane Katrina, so we quickly made the Midsouth our home.
I have been married to my husband Steven for 24 years and we have 3 wonderful children. My oldest daughter (Caroline) is a sophomore at Arkansas State University majoring in sonography, my youngest daughter (Madeline) is a junior at DCHS and on the school soccer team and my son (Louis) is in 7th grade at DCMS and loves everything sports related. They are our pride and joy and keep us extremely busy.
In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family, cooking, reading, traveling and going to my son's baseball games and my daughter's soccer games. Family is very important to me as is my job when I enter my class everyday.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in English education and an additional certification in Library Science from the University of New Orleans.

I have taught 7th grade English/Language Arts for nine years, preschool for eight years, 3rd grade for one year, and have been a school librarian for three years.

All students will be allowed to make up any missed work when they return.
