Mrs. Amy Farris
This is my fourteenth year to teach in Petal. I taught third grade for two years before I had the pleasure of being a stay at home mom. I stayed at home for nine years while my three children were little. Since then I have taught kindergarten, first grade, and third grade. I have taught all subjects and have been self-contained. I am currently teaching math and science.
I graduated from USM in 1997 with my bachelor's degree in elementary education. I later returned to USM in 2011 and earned my master's degree. I received my National Board certification in 2014.
I was born in Mobile, AL, but spent my childhood in Houston, Texas. When my father changed careers, we moved quite often, but stayed in Mississippi and Alabama. I have been married to my husband, Mark Farris for 22 years. He is the pastor of Summit Church. Mark and I have three amazing children. Cole is 20 and is a sophomore at Mississppi State University majoring in Wildlife, Fisheries, and Aquaculture. He enjoys being outdoors and loves to hunt and fish. Molly is 18 and is a freshman at Baylor University studying journalism and public relations. She enjoys playing basketball and traveling. Spencer is 14 and is in the 9th grade a Petal High School. He likes to play football and participates in the Soundations Show Choir. My family LOVES Walt Disney World!!
