Subjects Taught
2nd Grade Spotlight


I graduated in 1994 with honors from The University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, Alabama with a BS in Special Education.  My two grown children and my grandson live in the Tuscaloosa, Alabama area and are die hard ROLL TIDE ROLL fans.


I began my teaching career in Alabama for four years in the area of Special Education K-12.  Moving to Desoto County in 1998, I  taught in Tunica School District for two years in the area of gifted education with the Critical Teacher Shortage program, teaching 2nd through 8th grades in all four Tunica County Schools.  After completing my certification at Northwest Community College in the gifted field, I began teaching gifted education fourth grade at Oak Grove Elementary School, Desoto Central School, and Horn Lake Intermediate School located in Hernando, Southaven, and Horn Lake Ms. As Desoto County added new schools in the 2006-2007 school year, I began teaching 2nd and 3rd grade gifted with Hernando Hills Elementary School, where I presently teach 2nd grade gifted education.
