• It's great to back in the Jungle! My home has been here at Madison Central since 1991. I retired from teaching full time in 2015, but I have never been far from teaching in some capacity in Madison County Schools with the State Testing Tutorial Program. English II has the graduation requirement of the Mississippi State Test for English in the Spring; therefore, we will be rigorously working to prepare for this test. I was thrilled to have this opportunity to return to MC to teach English II which is my favorite class to teach because of the foundation it lays in writing, as well as, analytical reading. Both of these aspects of English II can support a student academically through college if successfully mastered. I am a long time Jag since my husband, Baxter, and I moved here in 1990 to have a place where our family could recieve the best education possible in Madison County Schools. Our boys, Ben and Brock, did recieve an excellent eduation from some of the best teachers there are. They both graduated from Madsion Central and have gone on to become succesful men here in Madison County. They have blessed us with two beautiful grandchildren; Mia our little princess who has entered Kindergarten this year in Madison County, and Charlie our little pitcher who has taken his first steps running not walking. I recieved my undergraduate education from Mississippi State in Special Education with my graduate emphasis in Learning Disabilities. After 25 years of teaching, I acquiredmy teaching certificate in English and taught English for 15 years here at Madison Central. So, after 40 years of teaching I still have a passion to help every young person determine and develope their strengths. I am very idividulized in the education your student recieves. I want to guide every student in determining their specific learning style that will allow them to reach their maximum potential. After this year I am hoping all my stundents have the desire to learn just as I have the passion to teach. This may be a challenging year, but it is going to be a very succesful year! Go Jags!
