I received my Bachelor’s degree from Mississippi State University in 1994 and my Master’s Degree from Mississippi College in 1997, both in the field of Elementary Education. I am married, live in Byram, and have a 20-year-old son and 3 dogs. My goal each year is to help my students learn to love school and to teach them how to be good LEARNERS. I will strive each day to make learning a fun and enriching process. I believe my students’ parents and I are a team working together to help their child develop emotionally, socially, and academically. I have 2 families: my school family and my home family. Once a child is in my class, they are, and will forever be, one of my babies.
