Greetings, my friends! My name is Kyle Crockett, and I am so excited to begin the 2021-22 year at Germantown Middle School. This is my seventh year at GMS, and I can't wait to get started with 8th Grade Advanced English and Language Arts and the hybrid course of ELA/History. You have a genuinely wonderful group of people at your children's disposal and your own, and I could not be more honored to work among them in building relationships with all of you and setting your children on the path to academic and social success that GMS takes so very seriously. I look forward to meeting all of you and working together to make this school year one of growth, collaboration, and success.
I was born and raised in Hattiesburg, MS and after high school, I attended the University of Mississippi. I graduated from the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College with a B.A. degree in History and a minor in Classics.
I'm in love with the world of literature and the deeply enriching perspectives it can offer all of us. Literacy, language, and a love of reading is the key to developing a true connection with the world around us and the people and places that make it so fantastic. Words lie at the heart of all we do and a constant attention to them creates a desire to learn and grow. They give us the mind to respect ourselves and others as contributors to a world of thinkers and innovators. It is my sincerest hope that I can work with your children to hone our skills as writers and readers and strive to find the very best version of ourselves in whatever way we can.
This is my seventh year as a teacher, and my seventh as a Maverick. I couldn't be happier to be here!
Again, I am so very thankful for the opportunity to develop relationships with you, your children, and this truly magnificent school. I will begin posting information and links as soon as I can that may be helpful for you, and I look forward to meeting each of you!! Don't hesitate to get in touch!
