Northwest Middle School -

Victoria Loper began teaching at Northwest Middle School in January of last school year, and she has been an excellent addition to the Northwest Staff.  While at Northwest, Ms. Loper has played a vital role in creating safety plans, procedures, and exercises for the school.  She has also been a key member of the Math team.  She is always pulling small groups, based on data, to help and enhance her students.  This is reflected in her Mississippi Assessment Program (MAP) and District Assessment scores.  Ms. Loper is a great example of how Northwest has increased classroom rigor and is becoming a successful school!

West Hills -

Cassandra Norman was chosen as Teacher of the Month for West Hills because of her commitment to the West Hills students.  She is a fifth grade reading teacher, and she makes every decision based on student need.  Mrs. Norman uses data to drive all of her instruction, and she has the determination to make things happen.  She always focuses on solutions.  Mrs. Norman is a wonderful asset to the MPSD Team.

 

Mayor Percy Bland, Meridian Parks and Recreation Director Kelvin McGruder, and local businesses, Cartoons and Balloons and Nino's Daycare, will be recognizing an outstanding teacher or staff member from two MPSD schools a month during the 2016-17 school year.

Congratulations to Victoria Loper and Cassandra Norman! We are very proud of you!
