• Welcome to 4th Grade!



    Welcome Message 

    Welcome to the fourth grade at Mannsdale Upper Elementary!  My name is Jamie Cunningham.  I will be teaching your child reading, language arts, and writing.  Mrs. Brister will be teaching math, science and social studies. I am excited about working with your child this school year.   I will do everything I can to make your child’s transition to fourth grade a very enjoyable and memorable experience.

    About the Teacher

    This is my fifth year as a Maverick.  I am thankful to have the opportunity to serve in such a prestigious school and awesome community.  I graduated from Mississippi University for Women in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education.  I obtained a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Jackson State University in 2005. I have twenty years of teaching/leadership experience.  I taught fifth grade at B.F. Liddell Middle School, (Macon, MS) for two years; first grade at McNeal Elementary (Canton, MS) for four years; second grade at McNeal Elementary for six years, and second grade at Goodloe Elementary one year.   During school years 2014-2016, I served as the District Intervention Specialist in the Canton School District.   

    My husband, Therman, and I live in Madison with our two beautiful daughters and loving dog, Coco.  Our oldest daughter, Trinity, is in the 11th grade and our youngest daughter, Taylor, is in the 9th grade at Germantown High School.

    In addition, I will need your support and cooperation throughout the school year in helping to make this a successful and enjoyable year for your child.  If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at 601-879-3433 or via e-mail at jcunningham@madison-schools.com.  I am looking forward to working with you the 2021-2022 school year.
