Subjects Taught
4th Grade



I grew up just outside of Olive Branch in Cockrum,MS and still live there with my husband Bobby. We have 3 horses (Star, Little Ann, and Old Dan), 3 dogs (Jerry Robert, Stella, and Emma Jane) and one bobtailed cat that rules the roost (Mr.B)!! I love spending time outside fishing, bike riding, camping, and just laying in my hammock with a good book!! I also LOVE going to the movies! After not going to the movies for about 10 years due to my hearing loss I am finally getting to enjoy the movies again thanks to the new Malco in OB that has caption devices! :)

I attended the University of Mississippi and graduated in December 2010 with a B.A. in Elementary Education. I have been teaching 4th grade at Overpark since January 2011.  I completed my Masters in Educational Leadership from Ole Miss in December 2018!  

An interesting fact about me:  I am hearing impaired and read lips! My students always like to challenge my lip reading abilities. :)


I look forward to working with this wonderful group of kids I have this year and watching them grow into lifelong learners!!
