My name is Neely Umphlett. I know what you are thinking... "How do you pronounce that last name??!!!" It's easy if you think about it like "Umflet". :)
I am a 1999 graduate of Mississippi State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I began teaching in 1999 in Rankin County at Rouse Elementary in Brandon, MS. I taught 2nd grade for 5 years, and then I took a 7 year hiatus from teaching to be at home with my children. I returned to teaching in 2011, and I began teaching Kindergarten at Mannsdale Elementary School, which is one of the feeder schools for Germantown! I loved my time in kindergarten and adored those babies, but I felt God stirring my heart to work with older children. So, 3 years ago I began teaching 6th grade ELA at GMS! I fell in love with teaching 6th grade and my GMS family!!! I am thrilled for the opportunity of this journey with you and your child.
Email is the best way to get in touch with me. :)

A little about me.....
I have been married to my husband, Will, for 19 years. He is a dentist at Capital Dental in Jackson, MS. We have two daughters. Kate will be a junior at Germantown High School, and Alli will be a freshman. We have lived in Madison for 13 years and are members of Pinelake Church. We are VERY involved in cheerleading! I am the cheer coach at Germantown High School for the varsity squad. Both Kate and Alli are on the GHS cheer squad! I also have 2 fur babies.. Sam (a 12 yr old golden retriever), and Charlie (a 3 yr old Sheepadoodle). My children have grown up in the Germantown Zone of the Madison County School District, and we LOVE IT!!!
