Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Graves

Hello! My name is Rebekah Graves and I am a 4th grade English Language Arts teacher here at PES. I began teaching 4th English Language Arts in 2017, and I am so excited to continue my 4th grade ELA  journey at Petal Elementary for the 2021-22 school year! 

Although I am originally from Tylertown, MS, I have lived most of my adult life in the Hattiesburg area. I received both my Bachelor's and Masters Degrees from William Carey University. 

My passions revolve around the arts. I enjoy reading many different genres of writing (especially poetry), and I am a lover of all things music! I love to sing and play the piano as well as attend concerts or plays. I also never miss a chance to try a delicious recipe! I am a "foodie" who loves to cook and try different/new cuisines! When I am not teaching, I spend time with my fiancé, Joe, and my dog, Rosey.
