    Madison Middle School!   
     It's a GREAT day to be a Jaguar!
     Go Jags!
    My name is Bethany Watkins, and I will be your child's teacher for the 2018-2019  school year.  I am a 1990 graduate of the old Madison-Ridgeland High School. 
     Before going to college, I married a military man and moved around quite a bit.  We have 3 children:  Abby is 19 and will be in her 2nd year at The University of Southern Mississippi this school year, Brooklynn is 17 and will be a senior this year, and Blake is 13 and my middle schooler.  We settled in Grenada, Mississippi, for a while.  I then decided to go back to college.  Although I am a HUGE Mississippi State Bulldogs fan, I am a 2010 graduate of Ole Miss.  This is my 9th year teaching and my 8th year at Madison Middle School.  I have loved every minute of it.
     I believe every child has the right to learn, but with that right to learn also comes certain responsibilities.  Classroom rules will be emphasized, and good behavior will be expected!  Your child will be challenged in my classroom!  I will expect their very best on a daily basis.  I love your sons and daughters.  And while a need for education may be the reason they walk through my door, my deepest desire is that my students know they are loved.  This is my goal. My objective.  My mission.
    I am always available to my students and parents!  It is my goal to get to know each and every one of you.  Please feel free to contact me any time.
