Madison Crossing Elementary

Mark Of Excellence

I am very excited about the new school year. This will be my eighth year to teach, and fifth in Madison County. Prior to coming to Madison County, I taught for two years in Water Valley, MS. I want you to feel comfortable with me as your child’s teacher and always come to me with any questions or concerns you may have. So to open up the lines of communication, here are a few things about me. I was born and raised in Meridian, MS and graduated high school from West Lauderdale High School in 1999. I then received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Mississippi State University and married my high school sweetheart who graduated from Millsaps College and then the University of Mississippi School of Law.

            My goal as your child’s teacher will be to provide the best education both academically and socially. I can assure you that your child and I will work together throughout the year to become thoroughly prepared for Fifth Grade as well as other grades and life itself. During the year, your child will also participate in various activities and classroom interaction that will help him/her succeed socially. I love my job and will work hard to prove that to you.

            I have attached a sheet for you to take a few minutes and tell me about your child. I am trying to gain some insight into their likes, dislikes, strengths, weaknesses, etc. This information will help me in planning my lessons in meeting their individual needs. Anything you feel would be helpful would be great!

            I am looking forward to having your child in my classroom. I believe that communication between you and I can greatly impact the learning of your child. It is very important for your child to know that we are working together. Please remember to check your child’s homework notebook daily and to sign or initial it each day. On Wednesday, I will send graded papers home. Please sign these and send them and return them the next day. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email me at or call me at 601-898-7710.  I am excited and anticipating a GREAT YEAR!
