Marketing and High Tech Video Production



I have been teaching and coaching at DeSoto Central High School since August 2012.  I received a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing from the University of Mississippi, a Master of Arts in Teaching from Belhaven University, and a Master of Science in Leadership from Duquesne University.  I received National Board Certification in December 2020.

In addition to being a Business teacher, I am also the head volleyball coach, co-sponsor of Future Business Leaders of American, co-sponsor of DECA, and co-sponsor for Fellowship of Christian Athletes.  I am a member of the Journalism Education Association, Mississippi Scholastic Press Association, American Volleyball Coaches Association, Mississippi Scholastic Press Association, and Mississippi Association of Coaches.  

I have three amazing boys and enjoy teaching Sunday School at my church.  I love traveling with my family (especially going to the beach), playing volleyball, and learning new things. 


Marketing has become one of the most important processes in modern life and affects many aspects of a person's life even without him or her noticing.  As a consumer, marketing surrounds a person.  This course will introduce students to today's fast-paced, rapidly changing and interactive global marketing environment by exposing them to philosophies and strategies as they are used for advertising, selling, and distribution of products.  This course will also address ways that marketing satisfies basic marketing concepts through project-based learning.

High Tech Video Production

High Tech Video Production (Jag TV) is a unique opportunity for students who are interested in Journalism and Broadcast Journalism.  Students will learn how to write a story, film and edit, and create a news broadcast.  Each week, this class will produce a weekly news show for the school.  In addition, students will live stream sports and theatre events throughout the school year.  Students will create Twitter videos to help market the school and inform students of upcoming events.  This course will challenge students to find and report the news while being creative and professional.  Check out Jag TV's website for more information.
