It is my great honor and privilege to serve the students of Biloxi as the Principal of North Bay Elementary.  After working in different schools and districts for the first 9 years of my career, I moved to North Bay Elementary 11 years ago and, there, I found my home in the Indian Nation.  In addition, both of my daughters are receiving exemplary educations as students in Biloxi Schools.  

I earned my first education degree at Ole Miss, then began teaching elementary school. Over the first 9 years, I gained experience teaching multiple grade levels from Kindergarten through fifth grade.  As a teacher, I always followed the path of a lifelong learner.  In doing such, I earned a Master’s degree in Education from William Carey University.   

For the past 11 years, I have served NBES in the roles of Academic/Behavior Strategist, Assistant Principal, and Principal.  It was during my first few years at NBES that I became inspired to continue my education, and I completed my Specialist in Educational Administration degree from William Carey University.  I am eager to continue working to positively impact our Biloxi students throughout my career, and I am so thrilled to come to work each day as part of the North Bay family.
