My name is Neely Umphlett.  I know what you are thinking... "How do you pronounce that last name??!!!"  It's easy if you think about it like "Umflet". :)

    I am a 1999 graduate of Mississippi State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I began teaching in 1999 in Rankin County at Rouse Elementary in Brandon, MS.  I taught 2nd grade for 5 years, and then I took a 7 year hiatus from teaching to be at home with my children.  I returned to teaching in 2011, and I began teaching Kindergarten at Mannsdale Elementary School, which is one of the feeder schools for Germantown!  I loved my time in kindergarten and adored those babies, but I felt God stirring my heart to work with older children. So here I am teaching 6th grade ELA at GMS!  I couldn't be more excited!  I am thrilled for the opportunity of this journey with you and your child.


    Email is the best way to get in touch with me. :)  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns. 



    A little about me.....

    I have been married to my husband, Will, for 17 years.  He is a dentist at Capital Dental in Jackson, MS. We have two daughters. Kate is a freshmen at Germantown High School, and Alli is in the 7th grade at Germantown Middle.  We have lived in Madison for 11 years and are members of Pinelake Church.  We are VERY involved in cheerleading! I am the cheer coach at Germantown High School for the varsity squad.  My oldest daughter, Kate, is on the 9th grade cheer squad at GHS, and Alli is on the middle school cheer squad at GMS. Both Kate and Alli also cheer on the same competitive squad at ACE of Jackson.  They cheer on the Senior Coed Level 4 team, Sharpshooters. I also have 3 fur babies...Bailey (a 15 yr old golden retriever), Sam (an 11 yr old golden retriever), and Charlie (a 1 yr old Sheepadoodle). My children have grown up in the Germantown Zone of the Madison County School District, and we LOVE it!
