I am proud to be in my seventh year as the De Soto Middle/High School principal and superintendent. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve students, families, and teachers in the district in any capacity and I am very appreciative of the support I have received in undertaking these dual responsibilities.  

I truly treasure our students and believe in the potential that each and every student has to be successful academically, in extra-curricular activities, and as a person.  I believe it is important for students to be involved in their own learning, to take on leadership roles, and to do their part in fostering a positive learning environment in our schools. I am also very appreciative of the parent and community support that supports these values and goals for student learning and achievement.

De Soto is “family” to me. My husband, DuWayne is the Director of Technology for our district and our daughter, Chelsea is in student at De Soto Middle School.  As a family, we believe in the quality education De Soto Area School provides students and we are enormously proud to be a part of the De Soto Educational staff.
Go Pirates!
