About the Teacher/Welcome Msg

Hello!

   My name is Abby Van Every.  I am a 2nd grade teacher at Hernando Hills.  I am originally from Senatobia, MS.  I graduated from Senatobia High School.  I attended most of my college career at Northwest and Delta State.  My family and I moved to Hernando in December of 2000 when my husband took a job with the DeSoto Times.  I graduated from the University of Mississippi with my BA in Elementary Education in the spring of 2004.  My first job was teaching 1st grade at Hernando Elementary.

   I have 10 years of teaching experience in the classroom and 2 years experience working with TST (Teacher Support Team).  I have taught 4 years in first grade, 2 years in kindergarten, and 4 years in 2nd grade.  This is my forth year to teach second grade and I couldn't be more excited!  DeSoto County Schools are outstanding schools!  I believe strongly in the Hernando Hills mission: "No Excuses, Just Excellence."  

    My husband, Marcus, and I have 3 boys and live in Hernando.  Easton is 21, Vance is 19, and Jordan is 11.  My family calls Hernando our hometown and it holds a special place in our hearts.  

     I look forward to teaching your child this school year.  I believe every child can and should learn to achieve his or her goals to be the best they can be.  Education opens doors of opportunity for individuals and their community.  I take educating your child serious and with a desire to help them reach their full potential.  Please contact me if you ever have any concerns or questions.  I look forward to working with you and your child to provide the best educational experience possible.
