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 17th 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 25 years ago, and I am the proud mother of three wonderful children. Tanner is 24 and attends Ole Miss majoring in Computer Science Engineering, Andrew is 22 and attends the NWCC Aviation program, and Angel is 20. She is our PE assistant here at LCES and attends the University of Southern Mississippi, majoring in Elementary Education.
My family is the most important thing in my life!
