Ann Smith Elementary
Mark of Excellence
Welcome to Ann Smith Kindergarten!
My name is Laura Bivins and I am so happy to have your child in my class this year. I have a Bachelor's & Master's degree in Elementary Education from Mississippi College. This will be my 30th year teaching kindergarten. In 2016, I became a National Board-Certified teacher. I also had the honor of being named the Madison County Elementary Teacher of the Year for 2018-2019. In 2020, I was awarded the Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching.
My name is Eden Breeland and I will be your child's assistant teacher this year! Ms. Bivins and I have worked alongside each other for 8 years now. I have a degree in Architectural Design and a degree in Drafting. I have been happily married for 8 years and have two babies. My babygirl, Finley, is 3 years old and my cat, Loki. I love spending time with my family and friends, kayaking, listening to music, cooking, art of all kinds, & watching MS State football and baseball!
Please feel free to call me at school, send a note, or email me. We look forward to a wonderful and exciting year!
