• Hi! I am Mrs. Pilgrim, I am new not only to Highland Elementary but also to Mississippi. I am coming from Florida where I taught for 20 years. I have enjoyed many roles in education in addition to teaching first, second, third, and fourth grades, I have worked as an ELL teacher, an interventionist, and an instructional coach. 

    My husband John and I have four amazing children, John, Marc, Grace, and Evan, a wonderful daughter-in-law Chloe and a beautiful granddaughter Mackenzie.

    I have a degree in Culinary Arts which comes in handy as we love to cook and eat! I also enjoy reading, travelling, and scrapbooking.

    I look forward to getting to know the Highalnd family!
