Assistant Principal


I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a B.A. in Elementary Education in 2010.  Over the past eight years, I have taught third and fourth grade at Overpark Elementary School.  I completed my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership in December 2018.  I am married to Bobby Long and we have a boxer puppy, Emma Jane. I am so excited to return to my hometown to begin my leadership journey. I look forward to working with the students, teachers, and community to continue the success at Hernando Elementary! #tigerpride
