I graduated in 1992 from Delta State University with a degree in Child Development and a minor in Special Education.  I went through the MAPQT 10 years ago and received my certification to teach.  I am certified in Special Education and Home Economics. I am currently completing my Masters in Special Education Instructional Specialist K-12 at Arkansas State University.


This is my 11th year teaching at Hernando Hills Elementary.  I am currently a 2nd and 3rd grade Inclusion teacher.


Bennie and I have been married for 7 1/2 years.  We met at a previous job and were reunited in car rider line at Hernando Hills.  After a short courtship he proposed in car rider line and the rest is history.  Bennie and I are proud parents of 5 fur babies (2 dogs and 3 cats).  My husband and I own Big Muddy Coffee Co. In my free time I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and watching animal vet shows.
