Mrs. Amy Farris
This is my eleventh year to teach in Petal. I taught third grade for two years before I had the pleasure of being a stay at home mom. I stayed at home for nine years while my three children were little. Since then I have taught kindergarten, first grade, and third grade.
I graduated from USM in 1997 with my bachelor's degree in elementary education. I later returned to USM in 2011 and earned my master's degree. I received my National Board certification in 2014.
I was born in Mobile, AL, but spent my childhood in Houston, Texas. When my father changed careers, we moved quite often, but stayed in Mississippi and Alabama. I have been married to my husband, Mark Farris for 19 years. He is the pastor of Summit Church. Mark and I have three amazing children. Cole is 17 and is in the 11th grade at PHS. He enjoys being outdoors and loves to hunt and fish. Molly is 15 and is in the 10th grade at PHS. She enjoys playing basketball on the Lady Panthers basketball team. Spencer is 11 and in the 6th grade a Petal Upper. He likes to play ALL sports and loves to watch ESPN. My family LOVES Walt Disney World!!
