I will be teaching College and Career Readiness and AP U.S. Government and Politics. for the 2020-2021 school year.  I attended DeSoto County Schools, and I am a graduate of Southaven High School.  I have a bachelor's degree in Secondary Social Studies Education from the University of Mississippi and a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Arkansas State University.  This is my 13th year at DCHS. 

College and Career


College and Career Readiness (CCR) is  designed to provide students with planning, resources, and skills to help them be successful in their postsecondary transition to college and the workforce.

There is no textbook for the CCR class.


Schoology will be the online platform for course assignments, assessments, and class communication. Schoology login information will be provided the school. 


AP Gov. Information

AP Gov will be a semester class for the 2020-2021 school year. Students will have 3rd block teacher aide listed on their schedule and AP Gov listed as a 5th block class for the fourth nine weeks. AP Gov will be taught in the 3rd block class for the entire semester. The course had to be listed this way in order for students to be in the class for the entire semester and for grading purposes. AP Gov is still a 1/2 credit course.


AP Gov students will be using Schoology and AP Classroom (CollegeBoard) to complete their assignments this semester. The AP Gov section in Schoology students will be using is labeled AP U.S. Government and Politics Spring 2021 Section 1.
