    Mrs. Sandra Watkins - 8th ELA

    WELCOME TO EIGHTH-GRADE ENGLISH/LANGUAGE ARTS!

    It's a great year to be a MAV!

    My wish for your school year is that you leave Germantown Middle with a tremendously strong ability to communicate through your writing and oral communication.  

    My Background:

     

    This will be my twenty-sixth year to teach ELA. (ELA is the BEST subject because a learner can hone his/her skills at sharing what he/she knows through writing and speaking!)  It is my third year to teach at Germantown.  I taught the previous twenty-three years in Winona, MS. 

    I earned a Bachelor's degree in K-8 education at the University of Mississippi (GO REBS!) and added a Master's degree soon afterwards.

    My husband, Randy, and I started a business in the area in 2017, so we made the move and have been so happy to become members of this tremendous community.  We have four children - Kayla (who is 31 with a family and works as a nurse), Kelsey (who is 26, works as a Physical Therapy Assistant and was just married this June), Allie (who is 21 with a family and is attending nursing school), and Stanton (who just had his 20th birthday and is working alongside his dad in our family business).
