Anna Kate Shurley

   Hello there! I am delighted to be part of the BVMS family. It's good to be a Viking! While I am a native of Virginia, I have strong roots in the deep South and have lived in Gulfport for nearly 9 years. I am blessed to share life with my husband Will, our two children, three crazy chickens, and a very patient dog.

   I believe that each of my students is extraordinary, and I will do my best to make sure they know it every day. I will also do my best to help my students become stronger readers and writers who are ready and eager to communicate their ideas to the world. Let's have a great year learning and growing together!
