Mrs. Tanya Rae Adams

2020-2021 was my first year teaching here at Gulfport High School. It is an awesome feeling to be an Admiral! 

Educational Experience: I graduated from D'Iberville High School in 1993. Went on to graduate with an Associate Degree from MGCCC, using scholarships to play basketball and tennis. Next, I received a Bachelor of Science Degree from USM, where I graduated with honors. I then furthered my education at The University of William Carey, where I received my Master's of Education. 

Work Experience: Started out teaching 10 years ago.  I  also volunteered my time at the Gulf Coast Research lab for shark and oil research, after the oil spill of 2010. Being able to help assist with collecting data for our amazing Marine Biologists that we have here on the Gulf Coast, heightened my desire to share these experiences with my students. I love learning new things and passing what I have learned to others. Watching students find the excitement of learning and seeing their confidence  increase in a science class is one of the best rewards of teaching.
