It has been my pleasure to teach at Desoto Central High School since the opening of the school in 2003. I have taught math, coached volleyball and softball, sponsored FCA, and sponsored Mu Alpha Theta. I have seen DC grow from a very small school to an extremely large school. We have always had a fantastic staff and amazing students. A few years ago I joined the PSAT team at DC. Since beginning the PSAT program at the school we have seen a record number of National Merit Semi-Finalists each year. Our 30+ club expands each year as well with our ACT prep programs.

DC pride is abundant in every area. We have outstanding fine arts programs, highly competitive sports programs, and top rated academics. It is truly a gift to be a JAGUAR!

I am married and have two sweet young boys who attend Desoto County Schools. I have a step-daughter who played softball at Mississippi State and is currently finishing her degree. I am an active member of the First Presbyterian Church in Hernando MS. I love sports of all kinds. Fall is my absolute favorite season. I love decorating and holidays! I enjoy fishing and kayaking. I love bonfires and SMORES! I love my life ;)
