    Welcome to fourth grade!  I am so excited to be apart of your year!

    I have lived in Petal my entire life, so I am a Petal Panther through and through!  I am a graduate of Petal High School, Jones County Junior College, the University of Southern Mississippi, and the University of West Alabama. 

    I began my teaching career in 2000 teaching first grade, then began teaching fourth grade in 2008.  I am excited to now be an inclusion teacher.  I love working with teachers and students to provide accommodations and interventions to have a successful school year!

    I am married to Matt and we have two children, Lanie and Miles.  They keep us busy with their extracurricular activites!  We have a Boston Terrior named Rosabella and a cat that has adopted us named Julia.  We enjoy cheering for the LSU tigers and go to games as often as we can!

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!  You can leave a message with the school office at 601-582-7454, email me at jennifer.updegraff@petalschools.com, or sent me a text through School Status.
