Welcome to Riverside Elementary School! I am excited to have the opportunity to serve our students, parents, teachers, and community each day. 

This is my 3rd year serving as a school administrator at RES.  One thing people should know about me is that I am passionate about the success and well-being of all students. I want the best for our students! We often remind students of the greatness that is within them and encourage them to always try their best, be their best, and push them to their potential at school, at home, and in life.  Then to witness students accomplish tasks, and be successful on milestones and goals, brings me great joy. 

RES is one of the best schools in Mississippi!  Our goal for this school year is to help our district and school to become an A district and School. Our theme for this year is "Level Up!" Each day during announcements, we remind students to always try their best, work hard, and be good citizens. Work harder than you did yesterday, do better than you did yesterday, and always put forth your best effort! 

For a visit or conference, please call the school's office if we can assist you in any way!
