I am from New Albany, MS and I attended high school at West Union Attendance Center. After high school I graduated from the University of Mississippi (Hailstate) with a degree in Exercise Science. I am a HUGE fan of Mississippi State, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Memphis Grizzlies. This is my first year to teach but my third year to be on a high school basketball staff. I hope and pray that I can have a positive impact on every student/player that I meet. I am incredibly excited to start my teaching/coaching journey at DeSoto Central High School. PRAISE THE LORD and GO JAGS!

Welcome to Our Class!

Welcome to our Economics class! I am extremely excited to teach all of my students about the most fundamental aspects of our economy and how to apply it to our everyday life.
