During my years at Terry, I have taught numerous classes including US History, World History, Psychology, Advanced Geography, and Government/Economics. Additionally, I served as the cheer coach for 12 years, the FCS sponsor for 8, and the yearbook sponsor for 5.
I have a B.S. Ed. in Social Studies from Mississippi College. In 1998, I became a certified Teacher Consultant through the National Geographic Society and the Mississippi Geographic Alliance. Through this role, I have trained numerous teachers in effective ways to teach geography, as well as, having lessons published in regional and national teacher publications. Because I have a passion for Social Studies education, I have also served as an active member of the Mississippi Council for the Social Studies Board of Directors and as a member of the Mississippi Geographic Alliance Steering Committee.
