About the Teacher
My name is Mindy Miles. I am first year teacher at Desoto Central Elementary. I have been an assistant in Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade at Desoto Central Primary since 2014. I absolutely love what I do! I obtained my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, with an endorsement in Social Studies, through the University of Southern Mississippi. I graduated in May of 2019!
I am a wife and mother! My husband and I have been married since 2005! He is my biggest supporter on everything in life. We have 3 amazing kids! Jonah is our oldest child. He is 10 years old and in 4th grade here at Desoto Central Elementary. Mason is our middle child. He is 7 and in 1st grade at Desoto Central Primary. Karlee is our youngest child. She is 4 and eagerly waiting to start kindergarten next year! In our spare time, we love to Overland, camp, hike, kayak, and watch movies!
