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.

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.

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.

TPSD has helped me share my art with the world. I am grateful that I came to Tupelo. I am able to see my friends and the people that have supported me. I am proud of being a Lawndale student!
