Welcome to 5thgrade! I’m Mary McCormick, and I will be your child’s Science/Social Studies teacher for the upcoming school year! I will be team teaching with Mrs. Leslie Tyler who will be teaching Math, and Mrs. Tammy Jasper who will be teaching Reading/Language Arts.
I am a graduate of Mississippi College with a degree in Elementary Education, and I'm currently working to become a National Board Certified Teacher. This is my sixth year teaching, my third year teaching 5th grade, and my second year at Mannsdale Upper! My husband and I live in Ridgeland with our dogs, Gimli and Stella. We love taking long walks, going to the symphony, DIY-ing our never-ending house renovation, and trying to keep all of our houseplants alive!
I love to travel, and have visited many different regions of the U.S., as well as 8 countries overseas. I’ve been blessed to be able to see the world from many perspectives, and I look forward to sharing a bit of those perspectives with your child this year! I’m also a homebody, and love nothing more than to curl up at my house with a good book!
I’m excited to get to know your child in August –it’s going to be a great year, and I can’t wait to get started.
You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
