My education journey began as a Special Education teacher who transitioned into the General Education classroom, and then was given the opportunity to feed my passion for technology by becoming a Classroom Technology Coach. I have served the district of DeSoto County for over 12 years. I offer trainings to teachers in the form of PD sessions before, during, and after school. I also help with the implementation of instructional technology within the classroom. My services also include trouble shooting, managing devices, and providing support in any way needed. I have a heart for teaching and a passion for technology! I work with a great team to provide the best that we can to our teachers and our students.

Classroom Technology Coach
DeSoto County Schools

Born and raised in Southaven, MS, I serve the same school district in DeSoto County where I attended first through twelfth grade.  I graduated from the University of Mississippi, have been married for 17 years, and together we have one 8-year-old boy who loves Legos, baseball and dogs.  Before taking on my current role four years ago as an Instructional Technology Coach, I taught the intellectually gifted for 15 years and third grade for one year.   I now share my love of technology by working alongside teachers to provide support with their interactive technology, and offer professional development sessions to motivate and inspire the implementation of software, apps, devices, and Google Apps for Education into their lessons plans.
