Welcome Message

Greetings! I am so excited to be working with Interventions, TST, and Testing at Horn Lake Intermediate this school year. My husband Derrick and I have a 7 year old son, Jaden, and a 4 year old daughter, Aria. I am looking forward to a great year! #TimeToFlyHL #WatchUsSoar


I received a Bachelor's in Elementary Education from The University of Southern Mississippi in December 2010, a Master's Degree in Reading Literacy from Belhaven University in December 2014, and a Specialist's Degree in Educational Administration and Supervision from Delta State University in May 2018.


I have been in education for 115 years and have been a part of the DCS family for 4 years. This is my second year as an elementary STC/Interventionist.
