"Every Student, Every Day...Whatever It Takes"

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! It is with great Griffin pride that I will serve as the Assistant Principal of Curriculum and Instruction. This is my fourth year here, if you do not count the 13 years I attended ND schools as a student!  I am here to support and serve our ND community, including our faculty, staff and students, as I will be working closely with Curriculum and Instruction. It is hard to believe that school is back in session! I hope everyone enjoyed their summer break. Here at North DeSoto High, we boast an amazing family of faculty, staff, and students, and we are ready to get back to work! I cannot wait to witness all of the wonderful things our students will accomplish this year.


Monthly Update: Football and cross country season is here! Please come out and support our student-athletes. Go Griffins!


As our Mission Statement reads: The North DeSoto High School family is dedicated to our students achieving academic success and obtaining life skills to become confident, self-directed, life-long learners.
