Mrs. Nash

Welcome To 5th Grade!

 

My name is Mrs. Nash, and I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade English and Language Arts at Mannsdale Upper Elementary this year!

I grew up in Birmingham, AL where I first learned to love teaching. My mom, sister-in-law, and grandmother are all teachers too! I made my way to Mississippi when I attended college at Mississippi College in Clinton. I graduated from Mississippi College with a degree in Elementary Education K-12 and endorsements in English, Reading, and History. This year will be my fourth year of teaching and my second year here at MUES. I am so excited to be a part of this community and help each of my students achieve their academic goals in the 2021-2022 school year. Go Mavs!

 

My Educational Philosophy

As a teacher, I encourage each student to set their own academic goals and create a plan to achieve them. My classroom is a place of growth, encouragement, and creativity. I want students to feel capable of anything that they set their minds to, as well as know that they each have a unique set of gifts that makes them special. I believe that each student is created differently and that their separate learning styles should be allowed to flourish in the classroom. I am excited to learn more about each of my students and help them grow!

 

Fun Facts About Me!

  • I love spending time with my family, reading, and finding fun things to do outside!

We are going to have a fantastic year and I cannot wait to meet each of you!
