Spotlight sponsors the CHES Blessing Box. If you have any items for the Blessing Box, send them to the  Spotlight Room or place them in the box behind the school.

Our Spotlight classes will be sponsoring a Free Snack Cart for the teachers of CHES this school year. If you would like to help with this project, we need bulk snacks. We have added some to our Wish List if you would rather buy on Amazon and have them delivered to our classroom. Any snacks are greatly appreciated. We also have some items we would love to add to our classroom for this school year.

About the Teacher


After graduating high school from Southern Baptist Educational Center, I attended the University of Mississippi.  I graduated in 1996 from Ole Miss with a degree in Elementary Education.  I taught 8th grade English and Literature at Olive Branch Middle School for two years, then stayed at home for 3 years after having my second child.  While at home, I went back to the University of Mississippi and earned my K-12 Gifted Education certification.  This will be my 23rd year of teaching and 21st year teaching Spotlight at Center Hill Elementary School for grades 2-5. 


My name is Emy Rutland Wallace and I teach Spotlight (Gifted Education) at Center Hill Elementary School.  My husband John and I have 4 boys Grey (26), Cole (25), Garrett (23), and Collyer (21).  I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and crafting.  I love teaching and am looking forward to a great school year.
