Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! I am so delighted to be your ELA teacher this year. We are going to have a great year in spite of all the challenges we may face.
About the Teacher
I am Kristy M. Wiley. I can't believe it, but the upcoming school year will be my 19th year teaching! Before joining Madison County Schools, I was a teacher in Jackson Public School District, Hinds County School District, and Canton Public School District. This will be my fifth year teaching at Highland Elementary and I absolutely love the students at this school! I am passionate about education and believe that with a solid education, the sky is the limit for any individual.Teaching Position4th Grade ELAYears Experience19DegreesB.A. Sociology - Tougaloo College 2001M.A.T.
