My exposure to education happened at such a young age. Being a second-generation educator, my mom taught me a love for learning early. Her love for learning was infectious. By the time I was 14 I was already interested in the teaching profession and found ways to teach my peers! I followed that passion to college and graduated in 2005 from Ole Miss with a degree in Bachelor of Arts in Education with an emphasis in curriculum development and general sciences. I then taught fourth grade in Oxford, MS at a local private school. Every job since then has always had a teaching element in it! In 2010 I started teaching Japanese students at Southeast Missouri State University. It was then I started pursuing my masters in TESOL. For the last several years my husband and I agreed that I should stay home with my babies. I have a 5 year old, Will and a 4 year old, Seth. It has been pure joy being at home with them, but I am equally excited to get back into the classroom! My passion is to teach holistically! Teach them a deep love for Jesus, a heart for learning and a passion to love and serve others!!
