Anna Marie Turner, Tony Lentz, and Alexis Hope, third grade students at SMS, interviewed the new third and fourth grade teachers/teacher assistants and found some interesting information.

Ms. Drew Magee is one of the new third grade teachers. Her hometown is Batesville, Mississippi, but she comes to us from Brumby Elementary in Marietta, Georgia. She is a graduate of Ole Miss and is currently working on her Masters Degree in Language Arts. Although she teaches all subjects, her favorite is Reading. In her spare time, she loves traveling, shopping, and just being in the sun. Ms. Magee thinks the best thing about teaching is getting to know her students and teaching them new things.

Mrs. Kristina Scruggs is the other new third grade teacher. She is married to Cody Scruggs, and they have two children: Grace, their six-year old daughter, and Caleb, their three-year old son. She is from Wyatte, Mississippi and graduated from Ole Miss. Like Ms. Magee, she teaches all subjects, but her favorite is English. When she is not teaching, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and always has fun shopping. She finds that seeing the joy on student's faces when they understand what they are learning is the most rewarding thing about teaching.

Our new teaching assistant in fourth grade is Ms. Letitia Smith. She team teaches with Mrs. Jonie King. Her hometown is Coldwater, Mississippi, and she transferred here from East Tate in the Tate County School District. She has a six-year old daughter, Jurniya Smith. Ms. Smith graduated from Northwest Community College. Although she teaches all subjects, her favorite is Social Studies. When she has a moment she enjoys reading, family, traveling, and cooking. She loves to teach because she loves the kids.
