Her favorite aspects of teaching include interacting with her students in a job that is like a new adventure each day.

She said that PRC High School has an amazing student body and she feels blessed to be able to spend time with them.

“I want my students to know that I love them and that my classroom will always be a safe place for them.”

Since she lives in Hattiesburg, she gets up at 3:30 in the morning on school days so she can dress her two toddlers and have them ready in order to commute to Carriere. Her morning routine also includes getting those little ones to daycare by 6:30.

“It is worth it to be part of the Blue Devil family and all the amazing things they are doing in the lives of our students,” Dean said.
