About the Teacher:

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 have cherished the years I have spent here.  I am looking forward to many more!

I have been happily married to an amazing man for the past 18 years.  We have 2 children (Alec, who is a senior at HHS and Jenna, who is a junior at HHS) who have filled my life with joy and wonder.  Alec is a currently taking the Digital Media course at CTC and is planning to attend Northwest Community College next year.  His passion lies in film, so film school is always a possibility down the road.  Jenna is a member of the National Honor Society, Interact, Prom Promise, and Key Club.  She is also one of the amazingly talented HHS cheerleaders, and has been on the cheer squad throughout her entire high school career.

The 2021/22 school year is my 7th year teaching here at Hernando Hills Elementary School.  My goal for my students this year is for them to find a love of reading and to leave my class with a journal full of ideas to write about.  Each day I promise to try my hardest to be the best for your child.  We are going to have a lot of fun and work hard in my classroom!  I am so excited to work with each individual student this year and get to know them.  I am ready for an outstanding year!  Thank you for letting me teach your child!
