Hello! My name is Kayla Saxton and I will be teaching your child Language Arts/Writing/Science this year. I will be trio teaching with Mrs. Audrey Will (Reading/Social Studies) and Mrs. Claire Winchester (Math).
I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi (SMTTT!) in May of 2018. I received my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction in December of 2021 from Southern Miss as well. This will be my fifth year teaching. However, I am no stranger to Mannsdale Upper Elementary. I was an assistant teacher at Mannsdale Upper for three years and I student taught under Mrs. Jamie Cunningham (4th grade Reading/ELA). My husband, Cody, and I live in Brandon, Ms with our sweet 3-year-old, Miles, and our precious 8-month-old, Ellie Bet! Cody is the Elementary Athletic Director/Asst. Football coach at Hartfield Academy. You can find us under the FNL! I love being a mama, spending time with my family, cleaning, and reading.
I am so excited about investing in your child this year! I look forward to a wonderful year full of growth and excitement! Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have! It's a great day to be a Maverick, especially at Mannsdale Upper Elementary!
