Hello! I am Racquel Gardner and I am super excited to be working with Gulfport Central Middle School again this school year. I was onboard last year with the Special Education Department as an assistant in the self-contained classroom but this year I will be branching out into the general education setting as a 6th Grade Special Services Inclusion Teacher.
I am a graduate of the forever great Xavier University of Louisiana (class of '14 GO XU!!!) with a Bachelors of Science in Biology and Chemistry and have received my license to educate through the University of Mississippi's Alternate Route program.
It is my desire to push each student I encounter into his or her fullest potential. I truly believe that each person that I encounter, young or old, has an invaluable existence and someone somewhere is depending upon you owning and living up to this truth!
As an educator, I will do my best to help the students at GCMS to discover and live out the greatness that is already inside of them.
Here's to a great year! :)
