Welcome to Petal Middle School!
Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Kristi Buckley
Hi! I am Kristi Fairley Buckley. I am a 1984 Petal High School graduate and a graduate of University of Southern Mississippi. I am married to Steve Buckley and have two grown children, Slade and Annaleigh. Steve and I moved around early in our marriage where I taught in several school districts for 9 years. We settled in Petal in 1996 and I became a "stay at home" mom. While staying at home to raise my children, I was actively involved in PTO, worked as a volunteer in their classrooms, and served on the Petal School District Shared Decision Committee. When my children left for college, I was blessed to return to my teaching career at Petal Middle School, where I work as an ELA Inclusion teacher. In my free time, I enjoy activities at Petal Harvey Baptist Church, spending time with my family, watching sporting events, exercising, gardening, shopping, and cooking.
Welcome to the school year!! I am so glad to begin working with you!! You will see me in the 8th grade ELA classrooms and 8th grade Tutorial. Looking forward to a great year!!! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
