About the Teacher/Welcome Msg
I am Jeanette Aday and my husband, J.B., and I live in Southaven.
I received my educational degree from Mississippi State. This is my 25th year of teaching in DeSoto county.
I am glad to be teaching your child this year and I have high expectations for him/her. I want your child to go beyond grasping concepts to thinking and applying their knowledge. I look forward to the possibilities that this extremely unusual year holds. GO MUSTANGS!
