I went through the Mississippi MAPQT program and received my teacher certification. I am certified in Special Education and Home Economics. I received my Masters in Special Education from Arkansas State University in May 2019.
Experience: This is my 14th year of teaching Special Education at Hernando Hills Elementary. I am currently teaching 2nd grade inclusion.
Bennie and I have been married for 10 years. We met at a previous job and were reunited in car rider line at Hernando Hills. After a short courtship he proposed in car rider line and the rest is history. Bennie and I are proud parents of 3 fur babies (2 dogs and a cat). My husband and I own Big Muddy Coffee Co. In my free time I enjoy reading, fill-in puzzles, and watching ID and Animal Planet.
