It is such an honor to work in this amazing school with these wonderful students! This is my 24th year to teach band, and I am looking forward to many more! A little about me- I am from Yazoo City and received my Bachelors in Music Education from Delta State University in 1998. I have a Masters degree in Educational Leadership and a Specialists degree in Instructional Leadership. I have a passion for teaching students and helping them realize their full potential.
At Madison Central, I assist with the High School band program and conduct the Concert Band. I also teach beginner saxophones at Madison Middle School and 7th grade woodwinds. I look forward to helping in any capacity that I can.
I am a member of the MS Band Directors Association, Phi Beta Mu, and the American School Band Directors Association. I have been a clinician for honor bands all over the state, and I am a member of the state superintendent of education's teacher advisory council. I am a National Board Certified Teacher and mentor for student teachers.
I have 2 children who graduated from Madison Central in 2019. Kaitlyn is an elementary education major at Ole Miss and Peyton is a music major at the University of Southern MS. When I am not teaching, I love to cook, garden, and read!
