Ms. Jaci Anderson

  • Hello students and parents! I am excited to be the new Community Based teacher at Petal High School for the 2020-2021 school year!

    I am a graduate of Petal High School and am thrilled to be back "home" with the Panthers! I graduated with my Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing and entered the working world. After a few years, I realized that I wasn't passionate about what I was doing with my career and I decided teaching is where my heart really wanted to be. I went back toschool and earned my Masters in the Art of Teaching in Special Education from William Carey University. During the summers, I work for the Arc Summer Adventures program. This school year will start my 5th year of teaching Special Education and I couldn't be happier.

    I am a single mother to an incredibly "spirited" 6 year old daughter, Emmalyn, who is an upcoming 1st grader at Petal Primary School as well as mother to an 8 year old minature poodle named Gumbo. We love going to the beach whenever we can and spending time with our friends and family. I love watching sports and am a HUGE Saints fan! WHO DAT!!!!

    I can't wait to get to know my students and begin this journey to our "new normal" together!!

    My email address is and you can contact me anytime. Once I have contacted you via School Status, please save that number and you will be able to text me at that number as well!
