• I am thrilled to begin my third year as a Literacy Specialist for Madison Crossing Elementary.  I am a graduate of Mississippi College and received my masters degree from William Carey University. I began my teaching career in 1998 as a first grade teacher but also taught second and third graders through the years.  This will be my 14th year at Madison Crossing and 22nd year in Elementary Education.  I am married to Trae and together we have two children (Will-freshman at DSU, Annalyn-junior at GHS).  I am looking forward to another great year of teaching and learning! Go Mavs!
