Welcome to Kindergarten!


    My name is Karla Mitchener. I am thrilled to have your child in my class this year! I hope both of you are ready to learn a lot of new and exciting things.

    We will be completing many FUN activities together this year!

    My family moved to Madison from Starkville during the summer of 2017.  I am from Tupelo, and have two older sisters.  I went to Mississippi State University (go dawgs). While attending college, I met my husband, Rob.  We were married on the beach in 2005.  We have two beautiful daughters.  Adleigh Claire is in 8th grade at Germantown Middle School.  Emme Caroline is in 5th grade Mannsdale Upper. My family has a boxer named CowBelle, and a turtle named Owen. 

    This will be my 18th year teaching. I have taught kindergarten, 1st grade, and 4th grade. I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to teach at Mannsdale Elementary School.

    My family enjoys watching Wheel of Fortune and playing board/card games together. We love to go to Mississippi State games on the weekends and spend time in the Junction.  My girls are very active in soccer and dance, which keeps us all busy! 

    I can't wait to begin this adventurous year with your child. We are going to have so much fun together. Snuggle your kindergartener a little more, and get ready for their KINDERGARTEN year!

    We are all BIG MSU Bulldog fans! We especially love having our picture taken with Bully.


    Speaking of Mississippi State....this is Belle. She, of course, was named after the famous

    noisemaker at MSU.
