    Welcome to 7th Grade Language Arts at Madison Middle School!  Information about my schedule, classroom policies, class assignments and homework can be found in the links to the left OR on Canvas.  

    I'm looking forward to an amazing year at Madison Middle.  I plan to challenge each student as we read, write, analyze, and collaborate together.  Please reach out to me at any time with questions, concerns, etc.  I'm here to help each student LEARN & GROW in all skills related to English Language Arts.  It's going to be a great year!


    Educational Background:  I graduated from Madison Central High School.  I received a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Journalism from Ole Miss in 2002 and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Belhaven University in 2014.  I received my National Board Certification in 2019.  This will be my 11th year as a teacher.  


    Community Involvement:    I am a member of St. Philip's Episcopal Church in Jackson and I'm actively involved at Camp Bratton-Green in Canton.


    Family:  My husband, Buddy, and I met at Camp Bratton-Green, Mississippi's Episcopal summer camp.  We both grew up going to CBG & he even proposed to me at camp!  We have two children, Whit (15) & Caroline (11), who attend Madison Central & Madison Middle.  We have three dogs and one cat.  


    Interests & Hobbies:  I spend my free time reading, playing tennis, watching movies, spending time outdoors, and spending time with my family & friends.  I love coffee, chocolate, candles, houseplants, holidays, stickers, sushi & shopping!
