Subjects Taught


I have been a teacher for a long time! I started my teaching career in Southeast Missouri at the high school level. After my husband, Billy, and I married, we moved to Hernando. I was a stay-at-home mom until my two boys started school at HES. I started teaching there, too.

Our children have now left me behind. Our oldest son, Bradley, graduated from Mississippi State and is living in Huntsville, Alabama. Our youngest, Brian, graduated from Mississippi State with his masters and is working in the commercial airline department at Boeing in St. Louis.  I am still teaching 2nd grade inclusion at HHES and I love it!

Mr. Gowen is our assistant this year. He started as a substitute teacher at our school several years ago, loved it here, and then became a full-time assistant.


We have a busy year planned at Hernando Hills. If you have any questions, please contact me or your home room teacher. We'll be glad to answer your questions.
