Welcome, Trojan Family!
It is a pleasure to be serving as your principal this year. As someone with a love for education, children, and life-long learning, I am well-equipped to provide students, teachers, and stakeholders with the tools necessary to help grow our students and have them become the best version of themselves.
In regards to the classroom, I have served as a K-12 educator for 28 years and served as adjunct faculty at Copiah Lincoln Community College for over eleven years. While an instructor at Co-Lin, I served as a virtual and face- to-face instructor in the Computer Science/Math department. I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Southern Mississippi. Afterwards, I continued my educational journey and received my Masters of Science degree from Alcorn State University, concentrating in mathematics and science. I then completed my Specialists degree in Educational Administration, also from the University of Southern Mississippi; from there I continued my studies towards my PhD in Educational Leadership, where I have completed all of my coursework and look forward to completing my dissertation. In addition to graduate studies, I obtained and have maintained National Board Certification. Along with classroom experience, I have served in the administrative capacity for over 8 years.
As an educator and parent, I am always learning and growing in order to help students be college and career ready and develop the social skills needed to work in a team environment.
Together we can ensure the success of our students and sustain the wonderful culture of Ferriday High School.
