Degrees and Certifications:
I am so excited to be your child's teacher for the 2023-24 school year! This will begin my 32nd year of teaching. I have a bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern Mississippi in elementary education (K-8) and a highly qualified status in Mathematics from Mississippi State University. I received my master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Mississippi College. I was recently awarded the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST).
I am a lifelong resident of the Gulf Coast. I was born and raised in Gulfport and currently reside in Biloxi. I grew up in a home of educators. I credit my love for this profession to a family of educators. My passion is teaching, and I strive to make my students have a positive educational experience. I am thrilled to be a part of Bayou View Elementary and a wonderful third grade team. I believe parent/teacher communication is the key to a successful school year!
Each day, I strive to make sure that my students achieve their highest potential in a nurturing and loving classroom setting. I look forward to working with you to help your child have the best third grade experience.
As you know, teachers will come and go in your child’s life. My goal is to be the teacher your child remembers.
