• This is Mrs. Word

    Welcome to first grade!  I am thrilled to be here at Mannsdale.  I received my Bachelor of Arts in International Studies from Rhodes College, and my Master of Arts in Teaching from The University of Memphis. When a child steps into my classroom, it is imperative that I instill in them a sense of self. I truly believe that reaching the whole child leads to a highly motivated and effective student. I hope to create a risk-free environment where students feel safe to express themselves, make mistakes, and learn from one another. It is my goal to instill a love for learning in my students.
