Before joining the Southaven High School staff in January 2015, I completed five years of NCAA eligibility as a track and cross country athlete at the University of Mississippi.  During that time I also completed my undergraduate degree and a portion of my graduate studies.  Since joining the SHS staff in January 2015, I have taught both yearlong and semester English II to 10th graders and assisted in the track and cross country program. 



Most of my students call me Coach Mac.  I teach the dreaded, state-tested English II.  I work with my students to develop habits and strategies that will benefit them beyond high school.  My ultimate goal as a teacher is to equip my students to read anything--from the label on a can of soup to a philosophy book--by simply knowing how to ask the right questions and find the best answers.
