TPSD has shaped me as an individual and has helped me find my identity. As a Tupelo native, this will always be home. The people in this community have given me these amazing opportunities to learn and grow each and everyday. From the many life lessons, to the cheers and chants, I know the true meaning of one wave.

It's a blessing to come back home. My time at Tupelo High School as a student athlete led me to want to teach and coach. It's been my hope since I graduated, that I come come back and have an impact on our students and athletes the same way my teachers and coaches had on me. TPSD has always and will always be a special place.

To be named Teacher of the Year for the Tupelo Public School District is truly an honor. This year, more than ever, I have felt supported in taking on new ideas and motivated to overcome new challenges. It is an honor to serve here, and it is a joy to teach our students.

My wife and I have come full circle in the Tupelo Public School District. We have transitioned from TPSD students, TPSD employees, and now TPSD parents. Go Wave!

TPSD means a lot to me because they keep us safe and teach us to be better learners. Teachers prepare us for the future and janitors clean to keep us safe. Principals find new teaching methods and counselors encourage us. Our Challenge program also helps us prepare for the future by focusing on thinking, communication and creativity skills.

Tupelo Schools have always been a part of my educational life. Now, as a community member and administrator, they are a part of my heart. I believe in our mission, our values, and the learning structures we provide for Tupelo's future.
