A message to my students!
Whether I have taught you before or never met you at all, I am so excited you are in my class ! I can't wait to see what all you can accomplish in my classroom, and even long after you have left my room. Once you are my student, you are a student for life!
About the Teacher
I attained my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education from The University of Mississippi. Hotty Toddy!! I am certified in all subjects K-6 grade, mild/moderate special education, math 7-8 grade, and English 7-12 grade!
Upon graduation, I worked in Rankin County for one year. Although it was fun to be a Brandon Bulldog, I am glad to be a Quistor again!! I have taught at OBES for 4 years, and coached at OBMS for 2 years. I am returning for my second year at OBHS as an ELA teacher and head coach!
Hello, I am Kaylie Groves! I grew up in Olive Branch my whole life, and I attended Olive Branch schools my entire education career K-12th grade. It is an honor to be back teaching in the same high school I attended.
When people ask me why I want to be a teacher, I always respond with "it is the only thing I have ever wanted to be." I remember sitting in my kindergarten classroom daydreaming about my future classrooms at only 6 years old. Teaching is not just a job for me, it is my passion. I love coming up with fun, innovated materials and activities for my students.
