Welcome!!!!! I am so excited that you took time out to view my web page. I am a proud employee of Desoto Central Primary. This will be my 9th
year working with this great staff, and I'm so delighted. I have been teaching for 19 years. I was properly trained and nurtured at Southaven Elementary under the great leadership of Ms. Lenore Turner. I JUST LOVE WHAT I DO!!!!!! I am the proud wife of Mr. Jonathan Shepard. We have four beautiful children together LaDarrius( Breanna), J.J., LaTajah, and Jenesis). I attend Dean Hill M.B. Church where I serve as a Choir member, Missionary Society, Children's Church teacher, and anything that I can find my hands to do. To me, teaching is a calling and I am glad that I was allowed the opportunity to work with one of God's precious gifts!!! I attended Ole Miss where I received my Bachelor's Degree. I wanted to learn more so I took an online course at Walden University where I received my Master's Degree.
I am also blessed to have an assistant who has the same passion for teaching as I do. This will be our 1st year together as a team. Her name is Ms. Kaylan Jones. She is 22 years old and a graduate of Desoto Central High School. She is also a proud graduate of NWCC. This will be her 1st year as teacher assistance. She is ready and eager to jump in a team up with me to make this year an enjoyable year for you and your child. I am so happy to have her. I am looking forward to working with such a young and lovely young lady that displays some of the same nurturing qualities as I have. It makes my job easier when I have someone working with me having the same goal in mind. Our goal is to equip our babies with a rich, loving, and nurturing environment in education!!! We are so grateful to God and Ms. Long for giving us the opportunity to become an investment in your child's future.
