Administrative Team

Close of Mrs. Wamble

Mrs. Leighanne Wamble,

I started my career in education in Tennessee as an ELA teacher and basketball coach. My husband and I married and moved to Mississippi and we have been here for 23 years. I have taught ELA, managed a teacher recruitment grant program, served as a parent liaison, and been an assistant principal as well.  

My husband Chris is an administrator at DeSoto Central Middle School. My son Easton is a senior at Desoto Central High. We live in Southaven. I came to work at DeSoto Central when Easton was two. He likes to say he bleeds purple and gold. He has certainly never known anything but being a Jaguar.  

I grew up on a farm in a small town in West Tennessee. I have three older brothers. I went to college at Union University and to graduate school at Ole Miss.  

I enjoy watching Easton play golf and attending sporting events whenever we can. We love to travel as a family. I enjoy reading, cooking, and attempting to keep the plants and flowers in my yard alive.

I am excited to be serving as the assistant principal at Desoto Central Primary School this year. 

This will be my eleventh year in education. I spent six years as a second-grade teacher, three years as a curriculum/digital learning specialist, and this will be my second year as the assistant principal at DCPS. 

I was raised in Collierville Tennessee. I received my bachelor's degree and master's degree in elementary education from the University of Mississippi. I also attended Arkansas State University where I received my specialist degree in educational leadership. 

I enjoy traveling, reading, and spending time with my family.
