Dear Brookhaven Family,


I am humbled to have the opportunity to serve as Principal of Mamie Martin Elementary School. It is my responsibility to lead the work of laying a foundation in literacy and math fluency for our students that will empower them to reach their full potential. I know that with collaborative planning, patience, and determination, we will make positive things happen for their futures!


At MME, children are our priority, and we are committed to keeping them safe as well as preparing them for success. It is my hope that you will share in our excitement about developing students that love learning and are excited about school. As an Ole Brook parent, you are a partner in your child’s education. We encourage your participation in the numerous activities and events occurring throughout the year. Additionally, we want you to feel connected to MME and welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss how we can improve our school.


If you have questions or concerns about Mamie Martin Elementary, please contact me by phone at 601-833-0007 or by email at I am looking forward to a great year where “Ole Brook” traditions begin. Thank you for

entrusting us with your children!
