    Dr. Josh Bressler


    My name is Josh Bressler and I have the honor of serving as your principal this year at Anniston Avenue Elementary.

    I am a proud graduate of Mississippi State University, where I received my bachelor’s degree in 2004. I am also a graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi, where I received with my doctorate degree in 2011.

    I began my teaching career thirteen years ago in the Harrison County School District at North Gulfport 7th and 8th Grade. The majority of my year career was teaching 8th grade math, but I did spend some time teaching 7th grade history, 8th grade history, and 8th grade compensatory math. Outside of teaching, I also coached football for three years and golf for two.

    I am married to Lauren, who is also an educator, and we have two beautiful little girls.

    I am excited to continue to build on a school that has a history of academic excellence. With the help of our hard-working teachers and staff and the support from our parents and community, I am confident we will have a successful school year.
