About Me

I have been a native of Mississippi all of my life with the exception of earning a graduate degree from Arkansas State University.  Upon graduating from Arkansas State University, in 1996, we moved back to Mississippi, and we reside in DeSoto County in the Lewisburg School District.

My husband and I made DeSoto County our home with our daughters.  We believe DeSoto County is a wonderful place to raise a family.  We have two daughters, Callie and Josie.  Both of our girls attend or attended Lewisburg Schools.  I love having them both close to my work and in the State of MS. I have one in university and one in high school.

I have been in the academic field of education for over 24 years.  I know the field of education is where I want to work and assist students.  I have over 11 years experience with GED instruction and remedial English, Writing, and Mathematics.   I have been certified in Special Education for over 11 years.  I love to work in remediation in order to reinforce what is taught in the classroom. I have taught Oral Communication for over 21 years through NWCC.

It is great to work with students one on one.  I am immediately able to see when errors occur and when errors are corrected, and when students are proud of their individual accomplishments, I am able to see this also.

It is great to know and to see students' accomplishments and share in the enjoyment with the students when this occurs.

Beside working as a SPED Teacher, I teach Dual Credit Oral Communication/Public Speaking. This will be my 1st year as a Band Mom. Exciting!
