Welcome to Kindergarten!


    My name is Karla Mitchener. I am thrilled to have your child in my class this year! I hope both of you are ready to learn a lot of new and exciting things.

    We will be completing many FUN activities together this year!

    My family moved to Madison from Starkville during the summer of 2017.  I am originally from Tupelo.  I went to Mississippi State University (go dawgs). While attending college, I met my husband, Rob.  We were married on the beach in 2005.  We have two beautiful daughters.  Adleigh Claire is a freshman at Germantown High School, where she is on the GHS Lady Mavs soccer team and also competes in high jump for GHS Track. Adleigh plays competitive soccer for Jackson Rush.  Emme Caroline is in 6th grade Germantown Middle School, and dances competitively for Repeat Performance Dance Studio and plays soccer for MFC. My family has an 11year old boxer named CowBelle, and an 8 year old turtle named Owen. 

    This will be my 19th year teaching. I have taught kindergarten, 1st grade, and 4th grade. I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to teach at Mannsdale Elementary School.

    My family enjoys watching Wheel of Fortune and playing board/card games together. We love to go to Mississippi State games on the weekends and spend time in the Junction.  

    I can't wait to begin this VERY adventurous year with your child. We are going to have so much fun together. Snuggle your kindergartener a little more, and get ready for their KINDERGARTEN year!
