I have uploaded all of my beginning of the year documents on this website under the Downloads tab. Students will receive paper copies of these the first or second day of school. The Student Information Sheet will need to be filled out and returned to the teacher. Students will also receive a Welcome Letter read this with your student. A Classroom Procedures sheet will come home as well. It will need to be read and signed, by both you and your student, and then kept in the students' binder for quick reference.
Parents AND Students - Please, sign up for Remind. It is a fabulous communication tool that keeps you informed about EVERYTHING that is going on in class AND at our school!! Just an FYI - At some point in the year I may have to create a 2nd class because Remind only allows 150 members per class. I will simply move students/parents according to your last name (starting with last names beginning with the letter A).
Here is the number to text: 81010 or (951) 251-1191

My family and I have lived in the Olive Branch/Nesbit area for 27 years. I have been happily married for over 33 years. I have two grown sons (Alex and JT), a puppy dog named LuLu (a border collie).
Here are a few of my favorite things: the Lord, my family, Hilton Head, tennis, cross-stitching, bike riding, reading, Italian, Chinese, and Mexican food, anything chocolate and caramel, rootbeer, sunsets, Amazon (gift cards), Bath & Body Works vanilla/coconut/beach scents (or gift cards), snow, manicures/pedicures (gift cards), spa days, hugs, my students (current and former), and puppies!
I took this picture of a beautiful Hilton Head sunset!
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 grade Social Studies.

I started out in the Special Education department when this school was just DeSoto Central School nearly 20 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 18 years. I worked with 8th grade inclusion students for 3 years and 7th grade inclusion students for almost 2 1/2 years. I taught 6th grade SS and Science (the first time) for 5 years. Then taught 7th grade for 4 years (1 - Eastern Hemisphere and 3 - U.S. History. This is my third year back in 6th grade teaching SS and Science! (I am even back in my original classroom!) I am super excited to be teaching another year here at DCMS and cannot wait to see what this year holds!
