Subjects Taught
3rd Grade


 I have attended many schools over the years, but I received my degree from Western Governors University.  I am a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor society for the past 10 years.  I was lucky enough to do my student teaching right here at HHES, and my prayers were answered when I was offered a position teaching third grade.  I truly love working with these kids and I hope I am able to continue in this profession for many years to come!


I moved from Arizona to Mississippi with my family in 2012, and we discovered Hernando purely by accident.  For that I am eternally grateful!  It has been a huge adjustment for all of us, but we have come to call Hernando home.  I feel blessed to have been invited to be a part of the Hernando Hills Elementary School family, and I look forward to the years ahead.

I have been happily married to an amazing man for the past 15 years.  We have 2 children (Alec - 9th grade, and Jenna-8th grade) who have filled my life with joy and wonder.  As I believe is true with most high school boys these days, Alec is a complete gamer.  He can do things on the X-Box that completely blow my mind.  He is also working toward his black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and he plays on the HHS Football Team.  Jenna is into gymnastics and cheer, and she is one of the very talented HMS cheer squad this year.
