     WELCOME to Journalism and Theater!

    I am so excited about this school year!  The 2018-19 school year marks my 15th year as an educator and I am thoroughly pleased to be teaching Journalism and Theater.  I have a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in English from The University of Mississippi (Ole Miss), a Masters’ degree in Secondary Education English and Reading from Christian Brothers University, I received my Education Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Mississippi College, and I am a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.  I have a strong passion for the arts, literature, and writing.  My goal is to enhance and strengthen my students’ knowledge through the use of communications, literary works, writing, and performing arts.

    My favorite pastimes consist of spending  time with my wonderful husband, son, family and friends, exercising, reading, traveling, and going to college football and basketball games, especially to cheer on the Ole Miss Rebels and the Holmes Community College Bulldogs!  In 2006, I married my college sweetheart, Jason.  He is the Head Men's Basketball Coach at Holmes Community College.  We have a two year-old son and his name is Karter Alfred.  I am looking forward to an amazing school year at Velma Jackson High School!  Please, visit my teacher webpage daily for important information and reminders.
