Education:

Mississippi State University - MS in Counselor Education

The University of Mississippi - BS in Elementary Education

 

Experience:

This will be my 5th year at DeSoto Central Primary School.  I began in the DeSoto County School district as a school counselor at Greenbrook Elementary.  I worked there for 2 years before helping to open up Southaven Intermediate School.  I worked at SIS for 4 years before transferring to DCPS. 

 

Services:

I begin every school day morning with announcements that encourage students to do what is true and good and right.  I teach character education lessons using the Integrity Time Know It program.  Small group and individual counseling services are provided based on the needs of the students.  Some individual counseling topics include: dealing with divorce, loss of a loved one, friendship, appropriate classroom behaviors, and new school jitters.   I also give individual tours of the school throughout the school year.  Please call in advance to schedule an appointment for a tour.  Group tours will be given in April every year for upcoming Kindergarten students and their families.  Please come to our front office to sign in.

Have a safe and fun summer!!
