Experience

I began my career teaching in Tunica, Mississippi. I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades. I began to realize that I am a upper elementary teacher and that I prefer grades 4-6.

Bio

Hello parents and family! My name is Mrs. Carter. I am excited to start a new year as one of the 6th grade Social Studies teachers. My goal is to give your students rich, hands-on learning experiences that promote a love for learning.

Here's a little about me: I was born in Olongopo, Philippines. I am a product of a military family that moved to different states throughout my childhood. My father retired and we settled in Meridian, MS, where I am from. I attended Ole Miss for 1 year with a full scholarship in music after high school. I majored in Music Education. I then transferred to The University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS where I obtained my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I met my husband in Hattiesburg, MS while in college. We now are married with two children: Mason, 7, and Maylee Jane, 2. I also have a cat named Alex, a weiner dog named Archie, and a pug dog named Albus (yes, like the headmaster from Harry Potter). I am a member of St. Paul's Catholic church, which is my favorite place to be.
