Madison Avenue Upper Elementary
Mark of Excellence
I am thrilled to be your child's inclusion teacher this year!
My name is Kristy Gandy. I have a wonderful family, and they are my pride and joy. My husband is Mr. Gandy. Fun fact: he teaches 2nd grade at Madison Avenue! We have two beautiful children and two sweet pups, Kit and Cosmic Charlie. Evie is in the 4th grade at MAUE, and John Auden is in 2nd grade at MAE. We ride bikes or walk to school as often as we can, which makes working at MAUE even more wonderful! I am originally from Louisiana. We try to go visit as much as possible for a good Louisiana Saturday night with friends and family! We attend Pinelake Church, where I enjoy serving in the children's ministry. For fun, I love cooking, playing with my dogs, and going to Cyclocross bike races to cheer on my Gandy crew, rain or shine!
I have been teaching for 11 years, and I still wake up excited about going to work! I have taught in the general education setting, hospital setting, and special education. My undergraduate degree is in Elementary Education from Mississippi College, and my master's degree is from Ole Miss in Early Childhood Education.
