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 deciding still deciding on which college he wants to attend.  His passion lies in film, so film school is always a possibility.  Jenna is a member of the National Honor Society, Interact, and Spirit Club.  She has also has been an HHS cheerleader throughout her entire high school career.

The 2021/22 school year will be 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!
