Principal's Corner

Meet the Principal


SES has been transformed into to Camp SES! Our goal is to "light a fire" within our students that will encourage them to be readers, writers, scientists and mathematicians.

I am very excited to start my 7th year as principal at SES! Before becoming a principal, I worked as a teacher at Oak Grove Central and as an Assistant Principal at Southaven Intermediate School. I am a native of Batesville, and earned my bachelor's, master's, and specialist degrees from the University of Mississippi. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, traveling, excercising, and cheering on the Ole Miss Rebels. I am married to Dink Upchurch and have three fabulous children, Courtney, graduate of DCHS,  Bankston(8) and Parker(5).
