Subjects Taught


 I am proud to say that I am a product of DeSoto County Schools as well as The University of Mississippi (Hotty Toddy!) I graduated from Southaven High School in 2007, and graduated from The University of Mississippi in 2011 with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and minors in History and English.



This is my third year at DCES.  Previously, I taught five years at Shadow Oaks Elementary! I have always wanted to be a teacher, molding and impacting the future of my students. I am honored to be the role model and leader of their music education experience. It is a calling, and I am so blessed to have your child in my class. I have high expectations for every student and strongly believe in parental involvement. If we work together, your child will achieve great things this year!




My name is Kayla Dearborn. I am 29 years old! I love to singing, playing guitar, and helping people reach thier goals. Being a teacher and a mommy are my greatest acheivements. I have been married to Lucas Dearborn for seven years. We have a beautiful daughter, Lily Micah, who is five, and a son who is one!
