About the Teacher
I am a University of Southern Mississippi graduate with a degree in elementary education. I was fortunate to begin my career in 2001 teaching 2nd grade at MAE. In 2004, I moved Texas where I spent another 8 years teaching 2nd grade. I also spent a year teaching 1st grade in North Carolina. Although I enjoyed both Texas and North Carolina my heart always felt at home in Mississippi, therefore I returned to MAE in 2012. I received my National Board Certification in 2016 and the Thad Cochran Distinguished Arts Educator Arts Integration award in 2017. I made the move to MAUE last year and really love 3rd grade! This year will be my 21st year teaching. I look forward to a wonderful year.
I have two amazing sons (10th grader at Madison Central and 6th grader at Madison Middle) who keep me busy and entertained. When I'm not at school, I love cheering on my boys while they play their favorite sports, boating with my family, and enjoy reading mystery novels.
