    Welcome to Petal Middle School.  It is my job to be the instructional leader of the school.  The faculty and I are excited to be a part of your child’s education.  We will strive to provide our students a safe environment where learning takes place.  Classes and extracurricular activities will be provided to help our students become lifelong learners.  This will take teamwork from our students, parents, staff and community members to ensure the mission of the Petal School District is carried out on a daily basis. 

    I graduated from Petal High School in 1987 and the University of Southern Mississippi in 1991 with a B.S. in Science Education. I then received a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership at William Carey College in 1999. I have taught Biology, Integrated Science and coached softball. I have 27 years in education with 26 years in the Petal School District.  I am beginning my 16th year as Principal of Petal Middle School.
