Welcome to Coach Douglas's Website!
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I'm looking forward to a great year at Petal Middle School! I want to thank you for the opportunity to teach your students. This is my fifth year in education. I will be teaching Resource English Language Arts and Resource Math for 7th and 8th grades. I will also serve as an inclusion teacher for World Geography and MS Studies. I proudly serve as an assistant coach for the Petal Panthers Middle School football team. I spent 18 years in sales before answering the call on my life to teach and coach. I graduated with my bachelor's degree from William Carey University in 2017. I majored in Physical Education and minored in History. I also hold certifications in mild/moderate disabilities and SpEd Fundamental Subjects. I'm currently a National Board Candidate for Early Adolescence Social Studies. I'm originally from Columbia, MS, where I graduated from East Marion High School in 2000. I now live in Petal with my wife, Keri and our blended family of 5 children.
I look forward to serving your students this year, whether in the classroom or on the football field. In my Resource ELA class, we will focus on gaps in fundamental skills needed to successfully read and write. All lessons are centered around the Mississippi College and Career Readiness Standards. In my Resource Math class, we will focus on those gaps in fundamental math skills, money skills, etc. We are moving towards going paperless, so the majority of assignments will be done on a Chromebook. Students will use Canvas, Edulastic, Readworks, Get More Math etc.
I want you to know that your students' success is incredibly important to me and that I'm always here to help . If you ever have any questions or if I can be of assistance in any way, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org, contact me through School Status or give me a call at the school.
