About the Teacher/Welcome Msg

     I am a graduate of Hernando High School.  I attained my Associate's Degree at Northwest Community College in 1997.  I completed my Bachelor's Degree at Ole Miss in 2000. 


    I  have been teaching since August of 2001.  I have taught 2nd grade all the way to 5th.  I began my teaching career at East Tate Elementary in Tate County.  I transferred to Desoto County Schools in 2003.  Since being in Desoto County Schools I have taught at Oak Grove Central Elementary School, Hernando Hills Elementary and Lake Cormorant Elementary School.  I am excited to be presently teaching First Grade at Lake Cormorant Elementary!


I have three children of my own. All three of my children have attended public schools in Desoto County.   My oldest is a sophomore at Ole Miss.  Then my two boys attend Lake Cormorant High School.  They are a senior and a freshman.  My son that is a senior has also been accepted to Ole Miss.  While my youngest is in the JROTC program at the high school.

Please don't hesitate to contact me via Class Dojo or School Status.  

These are the websites needed to work on classroom skills during distance learning!

These are two videos about counting money and telling time.  They love Jack Hartman!

Your student's username for the i-ready website will be first initial, last initial, and their student ID number.  Their password will be their student ID number.


Here are some additional websites for our munchkins to utilize as well. (class code:  tis8778) 


I am including the counselor's and librarian's website should you need to request a book or just have the kiddos see the different topics that Ms. Kim would be discussing with them.







As of right now, DeSoto County Schools are closed through April 17th.  A decision will be made on or before April 17th for any additional closures.


It is IMPERATIVE that your child read daily for at least twenty minutes!


Here are some fun websites for resources and activities for your child to use while we are out:  with code SCHOOL7771
