•       Welcome back to school!  My name is Debbie Bearden, and I am a second-grade teacher at Ann Smith Elementary School.

          Here is a little bit about me.  I earned my Bachelor's Degree from Daemen College in Elementary Education, and I have my Master's Degree from Mississippi College.  I am also a National Board-Certified Teacher.  This is my 29th year to teach!  My husband, Tom, and I live in the Gluckstadt area, and we have three children.  Dylan is a Mississippi State University graduate and lives in Tupelo, MS.  Jakob is a Mississippi University for Women graduate and lives in Jackson, MS.  Hannah is a junior at Mississippi State University.  Even though all our kids are out of the house, we have three adorable dogs that keep us busy!

          I am looking forward to a great school year!  We have so many fun things planned for this year!
