After graduating from West Lauderdale High School, I attended Mississippi State University and earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I have endorsements in Reading and Social Studies and a middle school concentration. I have begun work on my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction through Belhaven University. 


My first year in education was spent teaching all subjects in 4th grade at Philadelphia Elementary School in Philadelphia, MS. I then moved to Quitman Upper Elemenatary and taught 4th grade Math and Science. Wanting to use my endorsement areas, I moved to 3rd grade and taught Reading. 


This will begin my fifth year in education, and I'm loving every day of it. Every year brings with it new experiences, challenges, and opportunities. Outside of the classroom, I am the proud wife of Caleb Rich and we have an incredible son, Mason. We are also expecting our second child in January. Our family attends Northcrest Baptist Church where I teach Sunday School to 3rd graders. 

I enjoy reading and hope to foster a love for reading in children. I also hope to prepare children to be able to read critically. With more information, some true and some very false, available than ever before, I want students to be able to think and determine credibility when reading from sources. I hope to not only teach skills, but show how they apply in everyday life and give purpose to them.
