Assistant Principal

I began my teaching career with Desoto County Schools in 2006. Although I am certified to teach grades K-8, I fell in love with third grade while student teaching at Hope Sullivan Elementary. After graduating from the University of Memphis, I was blessed to gain a third grade position with the same amazing staff that served as my mentors.

In 2008, I transferred to Lake Cormorant Elementary where I taught third grade for another six years under wonderful administrators. These administrators inspired me to pursue a  master's degree in Educational Leadership. In 2013, I received a full scholarship to the Principal Corps program with the University of Mississippi, and completed a year long internship.

I am so excited to serve the community, families, and teachers of Southaven Elementary for the third year. We have such a devoted staff committed to ensure every child succeeds. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. Your feedback is vaulable and welcome. Together we can make great things happen!
