About the Teacher


   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 13 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, 3 years in kindergarten, and 6 years in 2nd grade.  This is my sixth year to teach second grade, and I couldn't be more excited!  I have taught in other schools and I must say, "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 sons.  We live in Hernando.  My oldest son, Easton is 23 and married to my beautiful daughter in law, Caroline.  They are expecting their first child soon.  So, I will be a grandmother!  Easton graduated with an electrical engineering degree from Mississippi State.  He and his wife live in Huntsville, Alabama.    Vance is 21 and attends Ohio University. Vance is #55 and  plays football for the Bobcats!   Our youngest son, Jordan, is 14 and is starting his freshman year at Hernando High School.  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.  School Status is the best way to communicate with me.  I look forward to working with you and your child to provide the best educational experience possible.
