Thanks for visiting my page! I previously worked in the capacity as Monticello Elementary School’s Assistant Principal.  What a joyous experience it was.  Now, I am just as excited to serve as the Principal.  I have been an educator for over 12 years.  I have served as an elementary, middle school, and high school teacher.  I spent two years transitioning from a teacher into a leadership role by serving as a Science Curriculum Specialist and Instructional Coach.  In 2020, I represented the District as Administrator of the Year and went on to become Mississippi 4th Congressional District Finalist.
