Assistant Principal

I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Mississippi, and then began my career at Horn Lake Elementary in DeSoto County 27 years ago. While there, I taught first and third grade. After six years, I left DeSoto County and went to A. B. Hill Elementary in Memphis where I taught 19 years. While at A.B. Hill Elementary I taught kindergarten 9 years, first grade 5 years, second grade 4 years, and a year in fourth grade. While staying in the Memphis City school district I transferred to Balmoral-Ridgeway Elementary where I taught Kindergarten for one year, then moved to Klondike Preparatory Academy where I taught Kindergarten and First grade for 2 years.

During my years in Memphis I was recognized by the district for literacy development, earned my National Board Certification, and had an article published in a book titled, "What Award Winning Teachers Do", by Corwin Press. In 2006, I was nationally recognized during a surprise ceremony where I received the Milken Educator Award. In 2009, I received a Master of Education degree from Union University, and in 2011 I acquired an additional Master of Educational Leadership and Supervision degree from Arkansas State University.

I am a long time resident of Desoto County, and have been married to my wonderful and supportive husband, Scott Borden for 37 years. We have two sons, a daughter, and four grandchildren. I love going to the beach and spending time with my family and friends.

I am honored to be a part of the SES family, and look forward to a memorable year full of teaching and learning.

Please feel to contact me at any time if I can be of service to you.
