Degrees and Certifications:
Deidra Gammill, NBCT, Ph.D
I have been teaching since 1995, after earning my BS in English at Mississippi University for Women and my MA in English from Mississippi State University. I earned my National Board certification in 2011, and completed my Ph.D in Adult Education at the University of Southern Miss in December, 2013.
I've been teaching a Petal High School since 2008. My husband, Michael, and I have been married for 28 years and have 3 children: Emily (a 2012 PHS grad); Christian (a 2016 PHS grad) who is a Junior at USM majoring in Graphic Arts; and Hunter (a 2018 PHS grad) who is at Jones College and playing in the Maroon Typhoon Marching Band!
I love to read, travel and write. Best of all, I love to teach!
