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.

I was very fortunate to grow up in a great Tupelo Public School system! Caring, bright teachers gave me an excellent preparation for college and law school. Both our son and daughter had excellent educational opportunities in the TPSD as well.

My vision is for TPSD to be one of the Top 10 Public School Systems in America. Our business and family is committed to do our part to make this a reality.

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.

McKinley Holland, Assistant Soccer Coach

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.
