    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 to Texas and 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.  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 and 3rd grade in 2020 and love it! I certified in Gifted Education this past school year. The 2023-2024 school year will be my 23rd year teaching and I  look forward to making it the best yet!

    I have an amazing partner and two wonderful sons (senior at Madison Central and 8th grader at Madison Middle), all of whom 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.
