Experience: This is my 30th year in education. I taught Kindergarten and First Grade for 27 years. I began teaching for the Blytheville Public School District in Blytheville, Ar. and later moved to Collierville. I have been teaching for Desoto County Schools for 21 years. This is my third year to be a teacher of English learners.
Bio: I am married and I have two daughters. Lane graduated from Ole Miss and completed her Master's degree from University of Memphis . Olivia is in the 10th grade at Collierville High School. We are originally from Arkansas, so we are big Razorback fans.
