    This is my fifth year as an assistant principal at RHS.  In 2023-24, I will be working primarily with 10th grade students and the Math and Art departments.  Prior to moving to Ridgeland, I served as assistant principal at Oak Grove High School (Hattiesburg) for 5 years and South Jones High School (Ellisville) for 3 years.  I also taught math for 8 years in Hattiesburg, Forrest County, and Petal before becoming an administrator.
