I am a 1989 graduate of Tupelo High School. It's ironic that I'm a teacher because I really didn't enjoy school when I was a student. However, I had fabulous teachers that inspired me to continue the example they set before me. I love the interaction I have with students and the opportunity to be an influence in their lives.
After college, I attended Mississippi University for Women. I graduated in 1994 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology.
I then attended the University of Mississippi to complete coursework in education/teacher certification and received my teaching license in 1997. I recentyly completed course work through Arkansas State University to become endorsed in AP Biology. I do prefer college football over NFL. The W didn't have a football team so I'm a Rebel fan.
My teaching career began in 1998 at Starkville Academy in Starkville, MS
In August of 2000, a wonderful opportunity was given to me to teach at Olive Branch High School. I have thoroughly enjoyed my 18 years at OBHS. One joy of teaching in this community is the chance to teach brothers and sisters and make the connection to entire families. It's hard to believe this is the nineteenth year in my teaching career. Subjects I have taught include: 8th grade Earth Science, ACT Prep, Biology I, Zoology, Physical Science, Botany and Human Anatomy & Physiology.
