I am so excited to be teaching 2nd grade Pathways (PA) at Mannsdale Elementary. This is my 21st year to teach and my 13th year to teach gifted at Mannsdale! While at Mannsdale, I have taught second, third, fourth, and fifth grade gifted classes, and I previously taught fifth grade math and science at Madison Station for eight years. I received my undergraduate degree in elementary education from Mississippi College in 2001. I also did my graduate course work for my gifted certification at Mississippi College in 2002. In December of 2007, I graduated from Belhaven with my Masters in Education. In 2019, I became a National Board Certified Teacher.
Outside of school, I enjoy photography, digital graphic designing, and spending time with my family. My husband, Bruce, and I have a precious daughter, Abigail, who is in third grade at Mannsdale Upper. I am also involved in the choir and missions at my church, First Baptist Jackson.
