Welcome to our Second Grade Class!
I am so excited to start our new school year! We are looking forward to an awesome 2019/2020 year.
My name is Debbie Bearden, and I have been an elementary school teacher for twenty-five years. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree from Daemen College in Amherst, New York, and I graduated with a Master's Degree from Mississippi College. I am currently working toward National Board Certification. I taught for 1 1/2 years in New York, 18 1/2 years at Gary Road Elementary/Intermediate Schools in Hinds County, and 5 years right here at Ann Smith Elementary School.
My husband, Tom, and I are almost "empty nesters"! Our oldest son, Dylan is a Mississippi State graduate who lives in Tupelo, MS. Our younger son, Jakob, is currently enrolled at Holmes Community College and living at home. Finally, our daughter, Hannah Marie, is a senior at Germantown High School. Even though my own children are older, I can still remember walking them to their 2nd grade classrooms.
We have many exciting plans this school year! Please check your child's folder every day. I will also post the newsletter every week on my website.
Thank you for all you do! It's a great day to be a Titan especially at Ann Smith Elementary School!!!!
