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 11th

year working with this great staff, and I'm so delighted. I have been teaching for 20 years. I was properly trained and nurture at Southaven Elerentary under the leardership of Ms. Lenore Turner. I LOVE WHAT I DO!!!!!! I have been blessed to embark upon a new journey and task here at DCPS. I am our New TST interventionist Teacher. I am the proud wife of Mr. Jonathan Shepard. We have four beautiful children together LaDarrius(Breanna), J.J., LaTajah, and Jenesis). I am blessed to add GLAM-Ma to my title this year. Layton Anthony is 8 months and the JOY of my life! I attend Dean Hill M.B. Church where I serve as Choir member, Children's Church Teacher, Missionary Society 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 on-line course at Walden University where I received my Master's Degree.

I am also blessed to have an assistant who has the same passion about teaching as I do. This will be our 1st  year together as a team. Her name is Mrs. LaShaunda Stallings. She has been in education for 8 years. She and her husband Shawn have been married for 9 years. They have two beautiful daughters Kaitlynn and Carley. She is currently attending the University of Southern Mississippi to obtain her degree in Elementary Education.  I am so happy to have her. She has displayed great character traits such as loyalty, nurturing and loving toward the  students. It makes my job much 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, Mrs. Long & Mrs. Wamble for giving us the opportunity to become an investment in your child's future.
