About the Teacher

I am originally from Sardis, MS. I now live in Hernando, MS. I graduated from the University of Mississippi (Hotty Toddy), where I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. This will be my 13th year teaching. I have previously taught first grade at Hope Sullivan Elementary. This will be my second year at the Hills. I am very excited to get to know your kiddos. I am married to my husband, Andrew and have one child named Lizzy Grace. While I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, shopping, and painting/crafting. I know this year is going to be great! Please feel free to contact me anytime. :-)
