Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Mark Fields I was born in Georgia and have lived in Tupelo, MS all of my life. I was a starter on the High school football team that made the state championship game 3 years in a row winning it my senior year. I was able to sign at Clemson coming out of school but ended up playing at MSU for a year. I ended up graduating from the University of Mississippi with a major in history. I have been in education and coaching either as a certified teacher or as a substitute for over 19 years. I just finished my masters in Educational Leadership from WGU and very proud to say I was able to accomplish that in a year and month after starting. I am so very excited about the upcoming year and excited about being here at Gulfport Middle. I will be teaching 6th and 7th grade history.
I am looking forward to working with your children and hopefully inspiring them to be the best that they can be. To open the wonderful world of history and help them to become just as fascinated and intrigued as I am. The goal is to help them by engaging them to understand and retain all information to help them as they move forward each year. I am here to help each parent and guardian so please do not hesitate to contact me for any help possible.
