Education: I graduated from Senatobia High School in Senatobia, MS. After graduating high school, I attended Northwest Mississippi Community College for two years. I then went on to Delta State University in Cleveland, MS where I earned my degree in Elementary Education. I began teaching kindergarten in Desoto County at Hope Sullivan Elementary. While there I decided to attend Union University to obtain my Master's degree in Education.
Experience: This is my 15th year teaching!! I have taught pre-K, kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade!
I have 2 sweet babies!! John Griffin is in 8th grade and Mary Lauren is in 7th grade. John Griffin loves hunting, fishing, playing baseball, basketball and soccer!! Mary Lauren loves to dance, tumble, cheer, play soccer, being in plays and spending time with her friends!! They keep me extremely busy :) When I am not chasing them around, I love to run, exercise and shop!!
