I love teaching! This is my 10th year as a 5th grade teacher at DCES. I began as an assistant when my daughter was in first grade.   I truly love this school! Both of my children, one who plays baseball with the Pittsburgh Pirates farm system and the other a Sophomore at Union University, have grown up in Desoto Central schools.

Way too many years ago, I received a BS degree from the University of Memphis (formerly known as Memphis State). For several years, I worked as a kitchen designer and then was blessed to be able to stay home with my young children.  Once they started school, I became active in the PTO and that led to a position as a first grade assistant and later a kindergarten assistant. At this point, I began feeling a call in my heart to become a classroom teacher. I completed the state approved 'alternate route' program for teachers. Going back to school was frightening at the time, but I earned my teaching certificate! I have truly enjoyed teaching 5th grade; I cannot imagine being anywhere else. 

I will do my best to make learning fun for your child. If you have any concerns, please contact me!!
