I am very excited to be teaching virtual 6th grade Language Arts and coaching the MMS Lady Jags basketball team! I am originally from Tunica, Mississippi but have been in the Jackson area for the last 10 years. I attended Ole Miss for two years before transferring to Belhaven University to play on the women's tennis team. After graduating from Belhaven with a B.S. in Elementary Education, I worked as a Graduate Assistant at Belhaven while completing my Master of Education degree. I am a National Board Certified Teacher, and just last year, I completed my Education Specialist degree. This year, I am pursuing a doctorate degree in Educational Leadership. I have previously taught fifth grade Lang. Arts and am entering my 6th year teaching sixth grade Lang. Arts. In my spare time outside of the basketball gym, I enjoy playing tennis, going fishing or hunting, and spending time with my nieces and nephew. I also love playing outside with my dog, Louie!
