I love teaching! This is my 12th 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 grew up in DeSoto Central schools. My son graduated in 2014 and my daughter followed in 2016.
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!! Email is by far the easiest and fastest way to reach me! I promise that I will respond in a timely manner. We use the remind texting feature only to send ya'll messages.
