The Tupelo Public School District has fostered my love of teaching, leading, and serving. Not only am I fortunate enough to work in a district that challenges me daily to be my best for my teachers and students, but I trust this district with my most important assets, my two children! It is truly an honor to be a part of something as special as the Tupelo Public School district.
