Principal's Bio


Welcome to Lake Cormorant Elementary School!

Education has always been my passion, and my love for learning has not stopped in my 19 years as an educator. In 1995, I received my Bachelor of Science in Education degree from Mississippi State University where I specialized in elementary education. I earned a Master of Education degree from Delta State University in 2002 – again focusing on elementary education. I returned to graduate school in 2014 as a member of The University of Mississippi’s Principal Corps. In June 2015, I completed my Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership.

My family and I moved to the area in 2010. My husband, Rickey, and I are so blessed to both work as educators in such a wonderful school district. My children LeeCarol and Davis are active in their DCS high school. DeSoto County has quickly become our “home.”

I absolutely love the atmosphere and the people of “The Swamp.” I am very blessed to be a part of the Gator Family of Lake Cormorant Elementary School. The feeling of acceptance, belonging, and family is undeniable here at LCES. Our teachers love what they do, and our students R.O.C.K. it every day!

Thank you for entrusting us with your children. I cannot wait to see all the success in store for the faculty and students of LCES!
