I am a proud graduate of Mississippi State University with a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Elementary Education. I taught third grade in JPS for 3 years. After leaving JPS, I moved to Madison County Schools and taught first grade at Ann Smith Elementary for six years. This is my sixth year at Mannsdale.  (12th year of teaching FIRST grade!!) I can't believe that I am starting my 16th year of teaching!! Time flies when you are having fun!! I am also serving as the K-2 teacher liaison for our PTO which has been so fun. I absolutely LOVE my job! 


    I am married to Taylor Polk, and we have 2 precious children. Our son, Banks, is in fifth grade at Mannsdale Upper Elementary this year. Our daughter, Leigh Wilson, is also at Mannsdale Upper in the third grade. I could not think of a better place to teach and send our children to school...We LOVE Mannsdale! 


    My family and I attend Madison Heights Church. We love to travel, go to MSU football games, and play with our chihuahua (Missy) and our lab (Tip)!! I am a proud sustainer with the Junior League of Jackson where I served as chair and co-chair of many volunteer projects. As always, it is a great day to be a Maverick...especially at MANNSDALE
