• I am a graduate of Presbyterian Christian School and William Carey University. This is my first year to teach at Petal. I teach 9th grade government/economics, and I could not be any more excited about it! I am passionate about the young people in this community because it is my home. I am honored to serve the Petal community as a teacher. I am married to my best friend Joy. Together we have two children. We are happy to call Petal home, and even more happy to serve the community through education. Mr. Wheat and family
