This is my 9th year to teach at Mamie Martin.  I taught 4 years in 1st grade and this is my 5th year to teach 2nd grade.



Bio
Hi!  This is my twelfth year to teach at Mamie Martin and I consider that a wonderful blessing.  I grew up in Ackerman, MS and attended Freed-Hardeman University in Henderson, TN where I received a degree in business.  I was an office manager for a furniture manufacturing company in Eupora, MS for 4 years and then spent about 8 years at home when my daughter was born.  I sold real-estate for Betsy Smith Properties for 13 years, and in 2001, I enrolled in Belhaven College to finish my teaching degree.  Teaching has been a lifelong desire of mine and I have never looked back!  The delight of teaching for me is to see children believe in themselves and see lightbulbs turn on as they "get it".   I enjoy playing tennis, playing Bunco, and am an active member of Johnson Grove Church of Christ.  Last March, my first grandchild was born.  She is the joy of my life!  Thank you for sharing your children with me each and every year.
