Principal's Bio

I am proud to be serving in my 6th year as  the principal of Bentonia Gibbs Elementary! I have a real passion for teaching and learning, and it is exciting to work with the amazing faculty and staff at BGS and to watch our students take on the task of becoming citizens and scholars of the 21st century! I am a 20+ year veteran of education and a National Board Certified Teacher. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from MS University for Women, a Master’s Degree from Belhaven University, and a Specialist’s in Educational Leadership from Delta State University.

My husband, Mark, and I have been married 15 years and have two daughters, Emma and Erica, who both attend Yazoo County Schools. I am an active member of First Baptist Church in Yazoo City. In my spare time, I love reading and traveling, and I am an avid fan of the New Orleans Saints football team.

My door is always open if you have any questions, concern, or ideas you'd like to share. Thank you for entrusting us with your children. It is both an honor and a challenge that we take very seriously.
