I will embrace every opportunity to foster a love of learning and a desire for knowledge through a wide variety of different teaching techniques and types of schoolwork.

About the Teacher

My name is Dionne Carr, and I am very excited to be an 8th grade math teacher here at Southaven Middle School!

Although I am from Chicago, I graduated from the University of Mississippi with my BA in Liberal Arts. This is my 2nd year at Southaven but my 17th year in education.

I live in Tunica with my 2 grandchildren  and our pet Egyptian Uomastyx. I know I’m biased, but he is the cutest lizard in the world. I love reading, traveling, and trying to cook new things. My specialty is Shrimp Alfredo! In the classroom, I love using technology to make learning more fun, accessible, and efficient. I also enjoy being creative with my students.
