My name is Desma Kelly, and I have the privilege of serving as principal at Tallulah Elementary School for this exciting school year 2020-2021. I grew up in Clinton,MS and attended Clinton Public Schools. After graduation, I attended Florida A&M University earning my undergraduate degree in Chemistry. Later I received my Masters of Arts in Teaching from Jackson State University. I  earned my Specialist and Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from Mississippi College. I have worked in education for 15 years as a classroom teacher, lead teacher, and assistant principal. My home crew consists of a niece, a daughter, and a son.

If you have questions or concerns about Tallulah Elementary, please contact me by email at or at 318-574-0732. I am looking forward to a great year at the Home of the Baby Jags! Thank you for entrusting us with your children!
