About the Teacher

Education
I earned a diploma from White Station High School, an A.A. degree from Northwest Mississippi Community College, and a B.A. degree from The University of Mississippi.  My degrees are in education, and I'm endorsed by the state in the areas of English, social studies, general science, and elementary education.  

Experience
I have been on staff at OBHS since January of 2009.  The subjects I have taught include: English II, Psychology, AP Psychology, Sociology, Creative Writing, Personal Leadership, ACT English Grammar, Intro. to World Geography, U.S. History, and Global Studies.  

Bio
Originally from Memphis, I have been a DeSoto County resident for over twenty years.  My husband, David, is a deputy for the Desoto County Sheriff's Department and serves as a school resource officer.  Our two eldest children are OBHS graduates, and our two youngest currently attend OBMS.  I feel truly blessed to be a teacher at OBHS and could not have envisioned a better home for my children than in Desoto County Schools.

Supply List 

3 ring binder (may share w/other subjects) with 2 tab dividers and notebook paper
pencil & ink pen (NOT red or yellow)
library book (for SSR-silent, sustained reading)
a desire to learn
manners and self control
