During this challenging time, we here at DCE are working on ways to ensure all of our students have access to an education. Please continue to monitor teacher websites for additional information. We will also be utilizing SchoolStatus to send out messages of updates as we have them.

Scroll down to the bottom for more information on distance learning opportunities.

About the Teacher

I am a wife, a mom, and a teacher.  My husband and I have two children.  Our youngest child is in 8th grade, and our oldest is a Senior.  I enjoy reading and spending time with my children.  My children are active in dance and theater; so I spend a good bit of time driving them around.

I grew up in Byhalia, and I am a current resident of Olive Branch.  I am a graduate of Samford University, where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.  After spending several years as a special education assistant, I decided to continue to do what I love and become a teacher.  I am now in my 3rd year of teaching at Desoto Central Elementary.

Websites for Students

Distance Learning:

We will start online learning on Monday, March 23rd! The purpose of online learning is to give your child an opportunity to extend his or her learning during this time. No assignments will be submitted to me and they will NOT be graded at this time. If this changes, I will let you know. As for now, use this how you wish and work on your own time!

If I do not see you for a daily class, please follow the guidelines on your regular classroom teacher's page.  However, if you need further help, you are welcome to contact me for assistance! 

Mrs. Herring's ELA Classes

This is a GUIDE for learning at home.  Please find a schedule that works for you during this unusual time!  Choose an area in your house that is just for school and use timers to help your student pace their work.  15-20 minutes at a time is ok, and breaks are great!  I am available for help during school hours (8:00-4:00 PM M-F).  Please let me know if you are having trouble accessing any of the work or if you would prefer packets. If you do not come to my room for class everyday, then follow your regular teacher's instructions.  Feel free to contact me for help!

I miss you guys and I hope we get to be back together very soon!

 Hello!  I thought that I would be seeing you this week, but I guess not! As we continue to work through this time I will post assignments on this page.  I will also update this page with more information as I know it.  I have 2 Reminds set up for sharing information. This is also the best way to contact me with questions or even to say hello!  One is a general remind for inclusion and resource.  If you have not joined this remind, please do so.  Text @6493b7 to 81010.  I have a separate remind for resource ELA students.  I will use this to share information and assignments.  This is only for students (and parents of students) in my resource ELA class.  Text @herring202 to 81010.  I miss seeing your smiling faces everyday!  I'll see you soon!

Just for fun send me an email about what you are reading this week.  I look forward to hearing from you!
