       I have enjoyed my summer break despite Covid, and am very excited to start a new school year!! My name is Andrea Pickett. Amanda Graham will be my team teacher this year. I teach reading and language arts while Mrs. Graham teaches math and science. I enjoy making memories and spending time with my family. I am married to Brad Pickett. He is employed with Cooperative Energy. We have two sons. Kane is 20 and will attend JCJC this fall. Kage is 11 years old and is in the sixth grade. Our daughter, Ava Kate, will be 7 in October.

       I was born and raised in Petal with one older sister. I am so proud to call the "Friendly City" my home. My parents are Larry and Karen Byrd. He is a State Representative in Jackson, and my mom is retired from Bellsouth. She volunteers her time to the Christian Women's Job Corp in Petal.

       I graduated from Petal High and began my college career at Jones County Junior College. I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I received my master's degree from William Carey University. I taught third grade for seven years in the Petal Schools and am anxious to begin my 14th year in fourth. I am looking forward to many more years making a positive impact on children's lives!
