About Me:

This is my 17th year of teaching, and I am so excited about my third year at Overton High School! Teaching is not only a profession for me, it is also my great passion.  I graduated from the University of Mississippi with my undergraduate degree in English and history, (Hotty Toddy!) and an M.S.E. in Gifted, Talented, and Creative.  

I LOVE traveling, reading, swimming, fishing, and just spending a lot of time with my friends and family.  I have been married to my husband for almost 14 years and we have two sons; Trace is 22 and Bennett is 10. Please contact me if you need anything, and I will be happy to help!!! I'm so excited to have an amazing 2022-2023 school year.  Go Wolverines!!!
