Welcome to Newton High School, home of the mighty Tigers! 
I am so excited about serving our community. I’ve been in education for 18 years.  I’ve taught in Memphis City Schools for 5 years and Meridian Public School District for 13 years. I’ve served as a classroom teacher for 14 years, math interventionist and assistant principal in Meridian. I am very fortunate to be working with such a great staff at Newton High School.  Our mission is to create socially, economically, and technologically productive world citizens by teaching them to think, reason, and use a variety of techniques to adapt to the challenges of society. The core of what we do is centered on high expectations for every student every day. I believe teaching matters and supporting teachers in the work they do to drive learning. I believe every student should leave Newton High School College and Career Ready.



  My goals for this upcoming year are the following:

                a)      Increase graduation rate

                b)      Increase proficiency in all areas (Algebra 1, US History, Biology 1, and English II)

                c)      Implementing a SWPBIS (School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention Support System)

                d)     Increase the quality of Tier 1 instruction




                Thank you for this great opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our children.
