Meet Your Teacher
Greetings from Ridgeland High School…I would like to introduce myself. My name is Mrs. Kathy A. Evans and I will be your child's teacher for the 2018-2019 school year. I'm a native of Tunica, MS and moved here after I received a job offer. I have been teaching Business courses (10th-12th) for twenty-seven years and I'm excited about working as your daughter/son high school teacher. I'm the senior Mentoring coordinator and I also teach Business Fundamentals and Freshmen Focus. I have been married for twenty-two years. My husband and I are MSU graduates and my eldest son is a Junior year at MSU. I have four children (10, 14, 15, and 21) who constantly keep me motivated. In my spare time, I like to pamper myself by visiting the spa. I also like to read, travel, paint, spend time with my family and shop.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in business education at the University of Southern Mississippi and Masters in Instructional Technology at Mississippi State University. My proudest personal educational accomplishment was receiving National Board Certification in 2004 (renewed 2014). I charted the first (FBLA) Future Business Leaders of America chapter at Noxubee County High School and Ridgeland High School. I have been an FBLA adviser since that time. In April 2007, I was elected Mississippi FBLA adviser of the year. I'm also the Recycling Co-Coordinator of the Recycling Team at RHS. I have served as an executive board member of Mississippi Business Education Association, American Federation of Teachers member, advisory committee for Holmes Community College, PTSO member New Hope Christian School, PTA Hill Crest Christian School, and hold affiliations with several other professional organizations.Major changes in education has occurred during my years of teaching. I believe in order to successfully teach, constant “change” is required to stay abreast of the technologies used in the ever-changing workplace. Because of this, I have been and continue to be involved in seeking professional development training. The greatest personal satisfaction is seeing a student understand and become excited about his or her learning/knowledge. I strongly believe that a teacher can make a difference in the life of each student. I continually strive to improve my classroom teaching and encourage students to develop high personal standards. Working with students has been and continues to be a rewarding experience.I believe that teaching is more than instructing from a textbook. A teacher must teach by example. My goal is to equip every student with the necessary skills to function effectively in a rapidly changing technological society. Well, enough about me. I’m really excited about getting a chance to work with each of you and expose you to the wonderful classes and opportunities at Ridgeland High School.Have a great school year!
