AP US History, AP Human Geo, & US History


I am a graduate of Southaven High School and The University of Mississippi! Hotty Toddy! Your students will hear this a lot! I am a product of DeSoto County Schools.  I attended Hope Sullivan Elementary, Southaven Middle School, and Southaven High School. I have my Bachelors of Arts in Education with an emphasis in English and History. While attending Ole Miss, I worked as a Special Education assistant at Southaven Middle School. I am entering my 15th year of teaching and still get excited to begin school.

In my spare time, I love playing tennis, cooking, shopping, watching movies, and running. My family, Shane, Luke, Aaron, and Lyla Cate are incredibly important to me and bring me so much joy. I discovered my love of history while attending The University of Mississippi. My professors' knowledge strongly influenced my desire to learn more about our nation's history as well as our state's history.
