I have been teaching here in Desoto County for 43 years.  I love children and want to see them succeed.  I have also been a bus driver for 45 years and drive my own field trips. My son and daughter have gone through the school system here and graduated from Desoto County High School, both have gone on to get a college degree.  I am extremely proud to say I have a grandson, whom of course is absolutely awesome.
