About the Teacher

Hi, I attended Hinds Community College and graduated with an Associates of Arts degree.  I completed my four year degree at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama.  I finished with a Bachelors of Hearing and Speech Sciences. 

This is my 20th year working with students with special needs.  I began working in DeSoto County Schools in 1996 at Southaven Middle School.  I transferred to Lewisburg Middle/High School its first year open. 

I have been married for 19 years and we have three children.  Hunter will be a sophomore at LHS; Garrett will be in the seventh grade at LMS; and Mayle will be in kindergarten at LPS.
