    Message to Parents: 
    Dear Parents,

    Hi! I’m Mrs. Edie Evans, and I am excited to be your child’s teacher this year. Learning Strategies is designed to give students an extra boost in test taking skills, which in turn increases confidence in Math and ELA. Mrs. Leah Addison and I co-teach the course—she teaches ELA and I teach math. This is our 9th year to offer Learning Strategies, and we have had great results!

    I write specific lesson plans for each student based upon needs indicated on state test scores, and I encourage growth through positive interaction and one-on-one instruction. This elective class is NOT study hall or a time to do make-up work & homework. Your child will receive the academic support he/she needs to be successful and improve standardized scores. We also focus on organization—you can expect to see your child keep a planner with all assignments and announcements. Students whose parents sign their planners on a daily basis receive an extra reward.

    Open communication is KEY! Students and parents can email me at eevans@madison-schools.comFeel free to ask anything and I’ll do my best to meet your need. Students may also message me on Canvas with questions.

    It’s going to be a great year at GMS! I can’t wait to meet you and get to know your child. See you soon!

    About Me
    I earned my bachelor's degree from Mississippi State University in 1998 (Go Dawgs!) and a Master's in Education (Curriculum & Instruction) from Belhaven University in 2017.  I am certified in elementary education K-6, highly-qualified in middle school language arts & middle school math, and I am a certified media specialist. I was named a State Finalist for the Presidential Award of Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching for Mathematics in 2010. I grew up in Canton, and after living in Pensacola, FL, for six years, my family and I moved back home. I enjoy volunteering at church, being outside and spending time with my husband, son, and my extended family. 
    I'm very excited about what this school year holds for your child!
