Ms. Jaci Anderson

  • Hello students and parents! My name is Jaci Anderson and I am the Community Based Special Education teacher at Petal High School.

    I graduated from Petal High School (GO PANTHERS) in 2005 and then graduated with my Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing in 2010. 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.  This school year is my 6th year of teaching Special Education and I couldn't be happier.

    I am a single mother to an incredibly "spirited" 7 year old daughter, Emmalyn, who is an upcoming 1st grader at Petal Primary School as well as mother to a 10 year old minature poodle named Gumbo and a "Mississippi Yard Dog" named Evie. 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!!!!

    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!
