About the Teacher


Dear Parents,

Welcome to my teacher website! I am thankful to have gotten the chance to meet many of you, but for those who I haven't had the opportunity to speak with in person, I'm glad you're here. Even more, I consider myself blessed to have each of your kids as one of my students.

Speaking of your kids, they have already learned that I have a mild obsession with coffee and a sort of addiction to dark chocolate. I've embarrassed myself more than once by misplacing my mug (and then frantically searching for it). It's been a true joy getting to know them. These first few days have been wonderful, and I look forward to continuing strong! Feel free to reach out to me with any questions.


I spent four years studying Elementary Education at Itawamba Community College (Associate's Degree) and Mississippi State University (Bachelor's Degree). During my time at MSU, I was given many wonderful opportunities to work with and learn from teachers in several Mississippi towns, including Starkville, West Point, and Tupelo. I also worked on and off for over six years at a preschool in Tupelo. 2021-2022 is my third school year teaching 5th Grade at DCES.
