    Welcome to our Second Grade Class!

    I am so excited to start our new school year!  We are looking forward to an awesome 2019/2020 year.   


    My name is Debbie Bearden, and I have been an elementary school teacher for twenty-five years.  I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree from Daemen College in Amherst, New York, and I graduated with a Master's Degree from Mississippi College.   I am currently working toward National Board Certification.  I taught for 1 1/2 years in New York, 18 1/2 years at Gary Road Elementary/Intermediate Schools in Hinds County, and 5 years right here at Ann Smith Elementary School. 

    My husband, Tom, and I are almost "empty nesters"!  Our oldest son, Dylan is a Mississippi State graduate who lives in Tupelo, MS.  Our younger son, Jakob, is currently enrolled at Holmes Community College and living at home.  Finally, our daughter, Hannah Marie, is a senior at Germantown High School.  Even though my own children are older, I can still remember walking them to their 2nd grade classrooms.  

    We have many exciting plans this school year!  Please check your child's folder every day.  I will also post the newsletter every week on my website.  

    Thank you for all you do!  It's a great day to be a Titan especially at Ann Smith Elementary School!!!!
