Machaela McCormick

Welcome to 4th grade!

I am so excited that I will be your child's 4th Grade English Language Arts teacher this year! This will be my fifth year teaching. I graduated from William Carey University with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education, and am pursuing my Masters of Education in Gifted Studies.

Petal has been my hometown since I was 5 years old. I was very blessed to have received my education in the Petal School District. Throughout my education, I was involved in cheerleading and show choir. In high school, I was a Varsity cheerleader and part of the mixed show choir group, Soundsations.

I also met my husband, John Marc McCormick, at Petal High School in 2012. We were married in December of 2017, and we continue to call Petal our home. We welcomed a beautiful baby boy in May of 2022. His name is Koda John. My husband and I are both members of Macedonia Baptist Church, where my husband is the  Minister of Music.
