    I am originally from Louisville, MS.  After high school, I attended Mississippi State University...HAIL STATE!  After graduation, I moved to Kosciusko, MS, where I taught for four years.  I also met the love of my life there, and we got married in June 2011.  While teaching in Kosciusko, I also completed my Master’s degree in Music Education at the University of Southern Mississippi.  I have taught at Madison Middle School since 2012.  My husband teaches 7th grade history at Clinton Junior High.  In my free time, I enjoy having tea parties with my daughter, cooking, Bible journaling, and throwing toys for the world's cutest basset hound!
