Welcome back to school!!! I am so excited to have you join my class family this year! I know school is going to look a little different this year, but that is fine. We will learn to adapt to whatever comes our way.

Education and Experience:
I am beginning my 9th year with Desoto County Schools. I worked as a SPED assistant for 4 years and as a general education assistant for 3 years at Southaven Intermediate. While working there I was completing my Bachelors Degree in Education with an emphasis in Math. I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi in May 2019. Last year was my first year as a Certified Teacher, and my first year at Horn Lake Intermediate. I am so exciting to back again this year!!
I am married and have 6 amazing children. My oldest son is 18 and graduated last year and is now serving in the US Navy. He is engaged to be married, so I also have a bonus daughter. I have missed having him home this summer and look forward to when I can see him again. My second son is going to be a senior this year at DCHS and my oldest daughter will be a 9th grader there as well. My third son is going into second grade and my youngest daughter will be starting Kindergarten. I also have a 3 year old son.
I have 3 dogs. Two are Boston Terriers, Dixie and Pixie, who are 12 years old. My third is a Labrador, named Thea. She is 2 years old. I call her my therapy dog because she always knows when I'm having a tough day and she'll stay by my side.
My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family!!! I also love reading, cooking, and crafting. I recently picked up kickboxing and LOVE IT! It's another great opportunity to spend time with family while getting healthy.
