Bio

I graduated in 2001 from Ole Miss with a Bachelor's Degree of Arts in Education. This is my 20th year to teach. My first two years I taught in Tunica County at Robinsonville Elementary. I taught fourth grade and fifth grade while I was there. In 2003, I joined the family at Hernando Middle and have been here ever since. I taught 7th grade Math for five years. I then taught 6th grade for five years. (Science and Social Studies for two years and 6th grade Math for three years) I have taught 8th grade Math and Accelerated Math for the past 8 years.

I have been married for 20 years and have 4 children, 3 sons and one daughter. I also have a wonderful daughter-in-law. My family is very active in our church, Bryant Lane Cowboy Church. I have an older sister and younger brother. We all graduated from school in DeSoto County.
