About the Teacher


I completed the 2+2 program with Northwest Mississippi Community College and the University of Mississippi. I have an Associate of Arts degree from Northwest and a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Secondary Education from the University of Mississippi. Class of 2011. My certification is in English 7th through 12th grade. 


The 2020-2021 school year is my seventh year teaching. I taught 8th grade for four years and 7th grade for one year at LCMS. This is my second year at Lake Cormorant High School. I am so excited for the new school year! Before I became a full time teacher, I had the pleasurable opportunity to work in many Desoto County Schools as a substitute teacher. During the three years I worked as a substitute, I was able to find the area where I was meant to teach. Our students have a special place in my heart.

LCHS Mission Statement:

Lake Cormorant High School is committed to empowering students with tools to grow academically; to pursue their own talents; and to become productive, responsible, involved citizens.
