    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! This year will be my 22nd year teaching and I  look forward to making it the best yet!

    I have two amazing sons (junior at Madison Central and 7th 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.
