My family moved to Petal when I was actually going into the 3rd grade, and I have lived here ever since! I am a 1998 graduate of Petal High School. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from The University of Southern Mississippi, my Master's of Education Degree, and my Specialist Degree from William Carey University. In addition, I have an endorsement in gifted education, and I am also a National Board Certified Teacher. Just like my students, I am a life long learner!
I have been teaching since 2003, and most of those years have been teaching 3rd and 4th grade in Petal.
I am married to Joey, and we have a precious daughter, Josie. We also have a Cockapoo named Maddie who is spoiled rotten!
Some of my favorite things include shopping at Target, Diet Coke, Disney World, rainbow cookies from Jody's Bakery, going to the beach, reading, listening to music, singing, and being involved in my church. I also enjoy watching sports, especially cheering for the Petal Panthers, the Ole Miss Rebels, and the New Orleans Saints! This year, I am also going to be cheering for the Indianapolis Colts because one of my former students now plays for them!
Please check the other resources on my page, and the 3rd grade ELA page for additional resources, too. Students will have a planner they bring home each night that will have important information, and Mrs. Scott and I send a weekly email to parents with detailed information about our days in 3rd grade! This year is going to be wonderful!
If I can be of any help or if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
