Education

I graduated from the University of Mississippi in 2001 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English.

I received my Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Mississippi University for Women in 2004.

My certification areas include English 7-12, Latin K-12, and Mild to Moderate Disabilities K-12.



Experience

I have 14 years of experience in the classroom.  I started teaching in 2002, at Heritage Academy, a small private school in Columbus, MS.  There I taught English and Latin. 

I moved to Philadelphia, MS, in 2005, and worked as a classroom English tutor at Choctaw Central High School, the high school operated by the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.

In 2006, I began working for Neshoba Central Middle School, where I was an English teacher and a Special Education teacher.

I started working at Horn Lake High School in January 2010.  I taught Special Education Math for one semester.  For the past 6 years, I have taught English and Latin.



Bio

Salvē!  I am so excited to be teaching at Horn Lake High School!  This is my 15th year to teach and my 7th year at Horn Lake.  I love teaching, and I am excited to have a new group of students interested in Latin this year!  I took 2 years of Latin in high school, and then I minored in Classics with an emphasis in Latin while an undergraduate at Ole Miss.  I continued my studies at Mississippi University for Women where I received a Master of Arts in Teaching degree.

I am married to my high school sweetheart, and we have two children: Ben, who is in 2nd grade; and Emma, who is in Pre-K.  My hobbies outside school include cooking, reading, and going to Ole Miss football games.

I am looking forward to getting to know my students and having a GREAT school year!
