Mrs. Coleen Knight

      My name is Coleen Knight. I am very excited to be part of Bayou Middle School where I will be teaching 7th grade Science. I was born and raised in New Orleans, La. I attended Delta State University on a softball scholarship where I earned my Masters in Elementary Education. I have taught in Madison, Rankin, Biloxi and now Gulfport during which time I have taught all grade levels K-12. This will be my 33rd year as a teacher. I have been a science teacher for 28 years, serving as the head of the science department at Rankin County Schools. I received my Certification in Educational Leadership and worked as an intern administrator in Rankin County for four years. I am married to Bobby Knight and have one son and two grandchildren.

      I am so excited to be a member of the Gulfport School District and I look forward to a wonderful year with you and your children. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
