ABOUT THE TEACHER

Education: I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a Bachelors degree in Accountancy and a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I earned my Master's degree in Gifted, Talented, & Creative Education from ASU and National Board Certification for Exceptional Needs Specialist.

Experience: This is my 14th year as a teacher in Desoto County.  I have taught Kindergarten, 2nd grade, and SPOTLIGHT. I am excited to be teaching SPOTLIGHT with Mrs. Rowell again this year!

Bio: I have been a resident of Desoto County my entire life.  I married my high school sweetheart 22 years ago, and I am the proud mother of three wonderful children. Tanner is 21 and attends Ole Miss majoring in Computer Science Engineering, Andrew is 19 and attends the NWCC Aviation program, and Angel is 17. She attends Lewisburg High School and is a member of the 5A state champion Lewisburg Band & Colorguard.

My family is the most important thing in my life!
