• I am so excited to be starting the 2019-2020 school year at Petal Middle School! I always believe that every student begins every new year with a clean slate!  I can't wait to see what your children will do as they grown and mature!  They have such bright and interesting young minds and I can't wait to see them rise to the challenges that they will face in 8th grade!

    Of course, things will be tougher in the 8th grade as we continue working with the Mississippi State Standards. We will have very high expectations for students. We will work very hard, and I know that every student will grow their writing, thinking, and speaking skills. We will be preparing for an end of the year assessment, but more importantly, we are preparing our students to be more powerful thinkers!  

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns throughout the year.  Parent, student, and teacher communication is vital if students are going to thrive in the the classroom!
