Hello Friends!!


I graduated from Grenada High School in 1990.  I received my undergraduate degree in elementary education from Delta State University in 1994.  I received my Master's of Education degree in elementary reading from Union University in 1996.  I received my national board certification in 2011.


I have been teaching school for 26 years.  We have moved around a good bit, so I have taught in several locations.  I taught one year in Charleston and one year in Grenada, MS.  We moved to TN where I taught 4 years in Halls, TN then one year in Munford, TN.  I taught one year in Memphis City Schools and then went to teach at Briarcrest Christian Schools for 3 years.  I went from Briarcrest to DeSoto County Schools.  I have been teaching kindergarten here at Greenbrook for 15 years. 

I am now beginning year 26 in education and I'm loving every minute of it. 


I have been married to Craig Taylor for 25 wonderful years. :)  We have two children:  Josh, who is in sixth grade, and Hannah, who will be starting her second year of college in August.  Both of my kids love playing soccer.   We have one a dog named Angel and a turtle named Snappy.   We attend Longview Point Baptist Church in Hernando, MS.
