    Welcome to 1st Grade!  

    I am excited to be joining the Madison Station 1st Grade Team this year. I look forward to a great year full of learning and making new friends! 


    About the Teacher   

    My name is Brande Winstead. I am a graduate of Belhaven University and a National Board Certified Teacher. This is my eleventh year to teach in the Madison County School District. I have taught Kindergarten, First and Second grades.  Helping my students discover the love of reading is one of my favorite things about being a 1st grade teacher.  My hobbies are reading, painting, and boating with my family. I also enjoy tailgating at MSU football games.  My family and I are members of Ridgecrest Baptist Church.


    Favorite words to live by: ...whatever is TRUE, whatever is NOBLE, whatever is RIGHT, whatever is PURE, whatever is LOVELY, whatever is ADMIRABLE-if anything is EXCELLENT or PRAISEWORTHY- think about such things. -Phillippians 4:8


    My husband, Mark, and I have three wonderful children, Tyler, Chandler, and Karlea. We also have a sweet daughter-in-law, Ashton. Tyler and Ashton are celebrating their first year anniversary in July. They live in Brandon. Chandler is completing his study abroad in Italy this summer and will begin his senior year at Mississippi State this fall pursuing a Biological Engineering degree. Karlea is beginning her freshman year as a Bulldog and is majoring in International Business. Children are a blessing and I look forward to loving and teaching your child this year!
