About the TeacherNumber of years teaching experience: 13Education:Bachelor’s Degree in English from Millsaps CollegeMasters in Teaching Arts from Mississippi CollegeTeaching Certifications:Secondary English LiteratureMild/Moderate Special EducationI began teaching English at Canton High School in 2008 after staying home with my children for 14 years. I left Canton in 2012 and moved to Brandon Middle School where I taught 7th and 8th grade English. In 2014, I was so happy to move to MAUE and teach Special Education. During this time, I taught all three grades (3rd, 4th & 5th) direct instruction from 2014-2017 and taught 4th grade inclusion from 2017-2019. Last year, I had the wonderful opportunity to move to 3rd grade as a general education teacher. For the 2020-2021 school year, I will be back in Special Education, and I am looking forward a year that is OUT OF this WORLD!
