About Your Teacher


I graduated from Senatobia High School and Delta State University.

I received my National Board Certification in 2010.

I received my National Board Renewal Certification in 2019.

I have been teaching for 16 1/2 years.

My students and parents are very important to me. I believe it takes all of us working together for success! I love sports and spending time with my son, Maximus. I also enjoy attending Memphis Tiger Basketball games with my husband, Mr. Justin.
