My name is Madison Bourne and I teach the 4-year-old special education class. I am from Hattiesburg and graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2016. I completed the alternate route program at William Carey University and received my teaching license in 2018. I am currently working on my Master's Degree at William Carey. This is my second year teaching and my third year at Thames Elementary.
This year, our class was chosen to be part of the Hattiesburg Early Learning Collaborative grant. With this grant, we get to collaborate with other pre-k classes in the Hattiesburg area including various Head-start programs, private day cares, and other HPSD pre-k classes. The goal of this grant is to ensure children receive a high quality early childhood education no matter where a child is enrolled. We are excited to be a part of this!
My assistants, Mrs. Douglas and Ms. Mixon, and I are excited for a new school year!
