Hello my name is Miranda Williams, and I will be your child's 2020-2021 5th grade All Subjects teacher!
I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with concentrations in English, Social Studies and Special Education. As well as Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. This will be my 6th year teaching at DCES.
My motto is: If you BELIEVE it, you can ACHIEVE it!
I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Kerry for 15 years. We have two beautiful children Mackenzi (12) and Micah (2). We also have three fur babies Bella, Chelsea and Lucky. Although I am a native Memphian I've called Desoto County home for the past 14 years.
In my spare time I enjoy all things Netflix, traveling, music concerts, crafts, spending time with family & football.
Go Titans! Go Rebels!
In the midst of a pandemic, I am confident that we will have an AMAZING school year!
