The spelling bee is a big deal to me because only one kid each year can win and it's very special. I like Tupelo schools because all my friends are here. I have a lot of good memories in the Tupelo schools. So, the Tupelo Public School District and the spelling bee mean a lot to me.

When I think of Tupelo Public Schools, the first think that comes to mind is a wonderful environment to learn and grow. Not only are there great teachers and staff, but there are also lots of opportunities to make life long friends.TPSD is a tradition in my family. My brothers and I have grown up in TPSD. This is what the TPSD means to me.

I bleed blue and gold! My mom graduated from Tupelo, I graduated from Tupelo, and both my children graduated from Tupelo Public Schools. This district has provided me, my family, and many friends a quality education that has prepared us for a successful life.

TPSD has shaped me as an individual and has helped me find my identity. As a Tupelo native, this will always be home. The people in this community have given me these amazing opportunities to learn and grow each and everyday. From the many life lessons, to the cheers and chants, I know the true meaning of one wave.

It's a blessing to come back home. My time at Tupelo High School as a student athlete led me to want to teach and coach. It's been my hope since I graduated, that I come come back and have an impact on our students and athletes the same way my teachers and coaches had on me. TPSD has always and will always be a special place.

To be named Teacher of the Year for the Tupelo Public School District is truly an honor. This year, more than ever, I have felt supported in taking on new ideas and motivated to overcome new challenges. It is an honor to serve here, and it is a joy to teach our students.
