LaWanda Wallace, Assistant Principal
I appreciate the opportunity to serve the
Lewisburg community in the role of assistant principal. DeSoto County
Schools has been a rewarding place to work for more than 20 years.
Throughout my career in education, I have had the opportunity to work
with students and staff at Hernando Hills Elementary, Southaven
Intermediate, Hernando Middle, and Southaven Middle. As a teacher, I
have experience teaching Self-Contained Special Education, Compensatory
Math, Pre-Algebra, and Science. In addition to teaching, I coached
volleyball, boys' basketball, and girls' basketball as a teacher before
becoming an administrator.
As a student, I graduated from
Central High School in Florence, Alabama. My undergraduate degree in
biology was earned at the University of Mississippi. As a result of my
further studies, I obtained a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership
from Cambridge College and an Education Specialist degree in Educational
Leadership-Special Education Director from Arkansas State University.
Currently, I am pursuing a doctorate in Education Leadership at the
University of Mississippi.
My husband and I have three
children and four grandchildren. The three children are graduates of
DeSoto County Schools (DCS), and their children now attend DCS.
Additionally, both my daughter and daughter-in-law teach for DCS. The
academic excellence of DeSoto County Schools is something we value and
support as a family.
I am honored to be a Patriot. My aim
as an administrator is to empower students and staff holistically to
achieve even greater levels of excellence today than they achieved
yesterday. Providing the finest education possible to our students and
community is my goal as a member of Lewisburg High School's
